Sam Feldt and Jeremy Renner

You ever have that one friend you've known for years that suddenly turns around and surprises you with some hidden talent you didn't realize was there? That's the vibe we're getting from Jeremy Renner right now. The actor is known for his roles in The Hurt Locker and Avengers, but now, dance fans can know him as the resounding vocalist on Sam Feldt's future-esque "Heaven Don't Have A Name."

"I've always been a big fan of Jeremy Renner's movies and acting performances," Feldt says in an emailed statement. "When I heard he could sing, too, I reached out to Renner, and we worked on this vocal together."

Renner has a serious set of pipes. There's something almost country-western in his swing, and the performance is truly powerful. It's a romantic song, really, but one steeped in mystery with a hint of danger. The trap-influenced drums add to that hard edge.

"I spent days perfecting the track into something that oozes both Renner's cinematic vocal style and the classic Sam Feldt summer sound," Feldt continues. "I love how the vocals are romantic and dramatic, and how they are complimented by a cinematic-style break and typical Sam Feldt drop."

"Heaven Don't Have A Name" is out everywhere Friday, Oct. 5, but you can presave it and listen to the song in full below one day early, exclusively on Billboard Dance.
