Published Aug 23, 2011Well, here's a remix we didn't see coming, but still, we're pretty pleased by the results. Drama-fuelled Brits Wild Beasts have taken on Lady Gaga's new single "Yoü & I." And even the band recognize that it's a pretty weird pairing.
Here's what Wild Beasts' Hayden Thorpe had to say to the Guardian about the remix: "The unlikeness of this match was perhaps what compelled us to take it on. Gaga in many ways is the epitome of what we are not. She is the butcher to our butter knife. The essential thrill is always to keep eluding what is expected of us and what we expect of ourselves."
The remix is to help raise awareness about the recent PIAS fire in London that found many indie labels losing stock in the blaze. You can get more information on how to help, as well as find links to donate, here.
Wild Beasts' "Yoü & I" remix is set for a physical release at some point in the future, but so far the details have not been revealed. For now you can enjoy a stream of the song below.
