​​Though it was technically released in the spring, Lorde’s latest smash, “Green Light”, is making a strong case for Song of the Summer 2017. As if you could mess with perfection, the hot track has today received a bit of an overhaul courtesy of electro-funk masters Chromeo. According to a press release, it marks Lorde’s first-ever official remix.

The Montreal duo removes the single’s undeniable piano hook, replacing it with their familiar brand of funked up bass. It adds a bit of ’70s lightness to the heavy dance tune, keeping things a touch more playful than the original. That goes double for P-Thugg’s vocoder modulated backing vocals on the second verse.

Take a listen below.

“Green Light” is the lead single from Lorde’s highly anticipated Pure Heroine follow-up, Melodramadue out June 16th.
