Foals remix Wild Beasts’ “Palace” — listen


Next month, Wild Beasts will release a “special edition” of their most recent album, Present Tense. In addition to the original LP, a second bonus disc of remixes by the likes of SOHN, Factory Floor, The Field, and Lone, among others, will be included. In anticipation, the UK indie rockers have unveiled a new reworking of “Palace” by fellow British group Foals.

While the original track evoked blissful daydreams of a faraway paradise, Foals’ version is better suited for a late night rendezvous at the club. Draped in a tapestry of simmering beats and softly glowing synths, it’s at times hypnotic and wholly alluring.

Listen in below.

The new edition of Present Tense is due out on October 14th via Domino. For more sounds, check out Lone’s remix of “A Simple Beautiful Truth”.
