Florence + the Machine and The Weeknd-Shake It Out Remix

A collaboration that will set faux-hipster eyes alight. The promising radio rip originally surfaced last week after Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 premiere, and the track officially made its way to iTunes last night.

The Weeknd adds his trademark dark, ambient spin onto the powerful, emotive vocals of Florence with a series of experimental samples, attention-grabbing percussion hits, and a soft key melody floating in the background. The hook adds a little more verve and energy, with a driving synth and vocal distortions that add a somehwat paradoxical chaotic melancholy, and whilst The Weeknd doesn’t seem to actually contribute vocally, his distinctive sound is all over this one. Very good remix that effortlessly floats across alternative and pop. Grab it on iTunes below.
