Blood Orange, who recently co-produced Solange’s great True EP, has shared his take on Phoenix’s Bankrupt! single “Entertainment.” Orange has stripped all of Phoenix’s signature urgency and immediacy from the track and replaced it with dreamy synth, a slow-burning rhythm, howling guitar solos and soulful backup vocals courtesy of ex-Sugarbabes Mutya Keisha Siobhan. It’s great to see Blood Orange come back ever so often to do what he does best: Prince-ify pop songs.
Previously: Dinosaur Jr. took a stab at “Entertainment.”
