Wild Beasts remix Lady Gaga's 'You And I' - audio
Wild Beasts have remixed Lady Gaga's latest single, 'You And I', and you can hear it at the bottom of the page.

Speaking to NME, Wild Beasts' Hayden Thorpe - who remixed the track with the help of Mercury nominated, fellow Domino artist Jon Hopkins - said that the remix came about after Lady Gaga's people contacted the band.

He said: "It's such a bizarre, unlikely thing that I was really drawn to it. That 'What the fuck?' element is really invigorating in a way. The song is more Shania Twain or Sheryl Crow-esque than Lady Gaga, so that was even more of a draw. It seemed like a huge challenge, which was really enticing, and I think as a band we’ve always quite thrived off doing unlikely things.

"I think sometimes it's important to do things which are out of character, or potentially damaging, you want to take risks sometimes, and it was a risk in that it's sort of like sleeping with the enemy."

Thorpe also revealed that he and Hopkins remixed the track in the midst of the recent London riots.

"The studio where we were working on it was down near Roman Road, where there was trouble. Jon wouldn't turn the music up too much in case people heard, realised there as a studio there and decided to loot it. There was a real sense of fear, which I found quite bizarre."

'You And I' is the fourth single to be taken from Lady Gaga's multi-million selling album, 'Born This Way'. As of yet, there is no news of a physical release date for Wild Beasts' remix.
