Following on from the release of their highly-praised studio album 'Dance Fever' earlier this year, Florence + The Machine have now returned to deliver a special remix of one of the record's standout offering.
The new rework of 'Heaven Is Here' comes courtesy of IDLES, and see the original track revamped with a dark and atmospheric texture.
Speaking about the new offering, Florence Welch said, “IDLES are one of my favourite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while.” explains Florence. “It might be strange for people to think but I see a lot of symbiosis in what we do in terms of live performance. Connection above all else. Joyful rage and togetherness. A lot of people wished that Heaven Is Here was longer. And I think IDLES have done the perfect job at turning it into a much demanded dance track that loses nothing of the hex at its heart.”
While IDLES‘s Mark Bowen added, “Dance Fever is quite a cathartic album for me, speaking a lot to the yearning for the release of performing but also introspecting on the need itself. it lives on the line of tension between the need for release and getting it (is that not the best bit?) no more is this encapsulated on Heaven is Here. I wanted to sit with that tension but then also lavish in the release on this remix.”
