Gone are the wine coolers. Gone is the warm breeze. There’s a cold chill among the palm trees tonight, because Kygo just remixed The Weeknd and Daft Punk‘s haunting collab “Starboy,” and damn is it dope.
It’s the most toned-down, dark, and brooding thing Kygo’s ever touched. It sounds, if anything, almost a little more Daft Punk-ian with languishing ’80s-esque synth runs, like a lost track from the Tron: Legacy soundtrack. The Weeknd’s vocal is beefier than ever, leaving plenty of space for you to make out every boastful, if slightly self-destructive, lyric.
Big ups Kygo for the cool take. Throw on a leather jacket, wear your shades at night, and listen to the jam below.
