Hear Lone's sultry remix of Wild Beasts' 'A Simple Beautiful Truth'

Kendal art-rockers get a tropical makeover.

Lone has unveiled his remix of ‘A Simple Beautiful Truth’ from Wild Beasts’ fourth album Present Tense.

Axing the original track’s supple bass and floaty synths, Matt Cutler repackages Hayden Thorpe’s dreamy falsetto into a sultry 4/4 roller complete with his trademark tropical overtones.

The track is taken from the forthcoming A Simple Beautiful Truth – Remixes EP due out on May 19, which also features versions by Djrum and East India Youth.

Earlier this year Wild Beasts delivered a FACT mix that took in dozens of the band’s recent influences (The Blue Nile, Talk Talk, Burzum) and even included their previously unreleased cover of Leonard Cohen’s ‘Hey That’s No Way to Say Goodbye’.

Meanwhile, Lone recently shared ‘2 Is 8’, the first track from his hip-hop and house-inspired new album Reality Testing, due out on R&S in June. [via Pitchfork]
