Deftones’ Chino Moreno Says “Black Stallion” Is Already Mastered, Describes It As Being ‘White Pony’ “Flipped Upside-Down”


Deftones frontman Chino Moreno has revealed that work has seemingly been largely completed on the upcoming “White Pony” remix album, “Black Stallion“. That effort is expected to emerge as a companion piece to an upcoming 20th anniversary edition of the band’s aforementioned platinum-selling 2000 album.

The likes of DJ Shadow, Trevor Jackson and Clams Casino have been revealed as participants in that project thus far. Speaking with, Moreno commented:

“The record’s just been mastered, and it’s fucking brilliant. It could have been a little self-indulgent — it’s a record based off another record that’s people already like, so it would easy to fuck up. Our initial idea was to have DJ Shadow remix the whole record.

He said he would love to do a song, so he did a remix of ‘Digital Bath.’ The majority of the people we reached out to came back with excitement: ‘Oh, I love this song. Can I do this song?’ The record is sequenced exactly like ‘White Pony‘, so it kind of takes you on a journey in the same way but completely flipped upside-down.”

Tomorrow, September 25th, will see the arrival of Deftones‘ ninth studio album “Ohms“.
