Listen to Kanye West’s Eerie Rework of Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat”

+

Two of the current hottest acts in music industry, Kanye West and Lorde, debuted this darkly seductive remix of the latter’s Yellow Flicker Beat at last night’s London premiere of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1. Flexing his producing muscles with more finesse and subtlety than ever, Kanye has taken an already great original and upped the claustrophobic undercurrents to make a track that washes over you like a deep sea in outer space. Catatonic, intoxicating, and filled with posed tension, “Yellow Flicker Beat’s Kanye West Rework, as its being called, makes an excellent addition alongside the movie’s stellar soundtrack including original work from Chvrches, Grace Jones, Raury, Miguel, and Bat for Lashes. Listen below and watch as everything you do becomes more heightened and symbolic.
