You can count the days to Taylor Swift‘s Lover on one hand now. Which means it’s the perfect time for British EDM trio Clean Bandit to give the album’s second single, “You Need to Calm Down” a super-fun remix. Grace Chatti, Jack and Luke Patterson put their hands all over the already chipper tune by adding in some bright, summery beats, froggy backing vocals, sunshiny synths and skittery drum fills that make the song the perfect soundtrack for a late-night beach party.
Needless to say, Clean Bandit were chuffed about the gig. “It’s a fucking amazing pleasure to announce that our remix of @taylorswift13 “You Need To Calm Down” is OUT NOW!! Calm Down Everyone,” they tweeted early Tuesday morning (Aug. 20).
