twenty one pilots' Løcatiøn Sessiøns: The Hype (Berlin)

If you've been obsessed with the funky drummer slap and slow-rolling soul of Twenty One Pilots' "The Hype," then you might have a new on-repeat favorite once you hear the Trench track stripped down to bare bones in the duo's latest "Løcatiøn Sessiøns" video.

The clip, which dropped on Thursday (Oct. 17), finds singer Tyler Joseph plugging his laptop into a recording studio soundboard in Berlin and playing the tune on piano. 

Alone in the room, Joseph flips the tune by putting a robotic beat over his plaintive piano playing and multi-tracked falsetto vocals, morphing the song into lo-fi bedroom R&B as he prepares to take the stage at July's Lollapalooza Berlin.

21P are on the last leg of their Banditos U.S. tour, with the run slated to wind up on Nov. 8 at the BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
