Laurie Anderson, Nonesuch Records and Indaba Music have launched a search for collaborators to remix Anderson's new song "Only an Expert," from her album Homeland, which Nonesuch Records will release June 22.

Sourcing a remix from Indaba Music's worldwide community is in keeping with Anderson's creative process for Homeland, as the artist developed many of the songs-including "Only an Expert"- in public and on the road, constantly improvising new elements over the course of numerous versions. Rather than hiring a producer to remix the song, Anderson will leave it to fans and fellow musicians on Indaba Music-one of whom will have their remix included on the iTunes release of Homeland.

Starting today through May 13, remixers can visit http://www.indabamusic.com/remixla to create their own version of the "Only an Expert." From May 13 through May 27, fans and a jury of experts including Anderson will review the submissions. Then Indaba will announce the jury's choices of Grand Prize Winner and two Runners-Up, as well as the public's choice of ten Honorable Mentions.

All jury selections will receive prizes. Specifically:

Grand Prize (1)
$1,000
Remix included on iTunes edition of Homeland
One year free Platinum membership to Indaba Music

Runners-Up (2)
One year free Platinum membership to Indaba Music

Honorable Mentions (10)
One year free Pro memberships to Indaba Music
Remix streamed on Anderson's official site
Signed deluxe package: 12-inch "Only an Expert" single and Homeland CD

Homeland is Anderson's first studio album in ten years. She produced the album with Lou Reed and Roma Baran, and engineered it with Pat Dillett, Mario McNulty and Marc Urselli. The music is instantly recognizable as Anderson's, though it draws on a broad scope of styles: she sings throughout and plays newly developed sounds on violin, as well as contributing keyboards and percussion. Her vocals are often mediated by the vocal filter she long ago invented to perform her signature "audio drag," this time voicing Fenway Bergamot, the male alter-ego who appears on the album's cover and narrates the song "Another Day in America."
