Carly Rae Jepsen Links With ASTR on Ceaselessly Swirling ‘Run Away With Me’ Remix
A pairing we didn't expect but are nonetheless obsessed with
Earlier this summer, SPIN called Carly Rae Jepsen’s trumpeted “Run Away With Me” the best pop song of 2015 so far. SPIN also loved New York trip-hop duo ASTR’s 2014 Varsity EP so much that we put it on our Best Albums of 2014 list. Now those two musical entities have collided on a gauzy, dance-your-face-off remix of “Run Away With Me” that signals the very-impending arrival of Jepsen’s sophomore LP, E•MO•TION.
ASTR take the pop star’s original and flesh it out, giving it extended intros and outros, chopping Jepsen’s voice into spiraling little parcels and using them for dance floor kibble. Hear it below and raise your hands skyward in thanks.
