Published Oct 05, 2012Bat for Lashes' recently released track "All Your Gold" boasts a subtle, relatively restrained arrangement, but the same cannot be said for the new remix by New York dancefloor fiends Hercules and Love Affair.
This reworking removes the track's slow-building dynamics and turns it into a relentless, near-six-minute disco jam. It features a steadily thumping beat and some '80s-esque, MIDI-sounding piano plunks. While the instrumental arrangement is a major departure from the original, Khan's breathy, dramatic vocals are preserved. If you were curious about what it would sound like if Bat for Lashes made a full-blown dance record, this should give you a pretty good idea.

"All Your Gold," in its original form, appears on the upcoming The Haunted Man, due out in North America on October 23 via Capitol.
