Kanye West Drapes Lorde’s ‘Yellow Flicker Beat’ in Darkness

Lorde’s “Yellow Flicker Beat,” her gloomy contribution to The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1 soundtrack, was already pretty dark. Now Kanye West has taken it upon himself to make the track even more ominous on his brand-new rework, which feels fully appropriate here, keeping in mind the movie’s hyper-dystopian subject matter.

While Kanye’s remix doesn’t feature his vocals, its slow, pounding electronic drum beats and grim backing vocals sound like they came straight from page one of the West Workbook (see: any track on Yeezus). Hear LordYe’s entrancing collaboration below.
