So this is pretty awesome. The Dirty Projectors recently went on the Australia’s Triple J radio and covered Usher’s excellent, “Climax” for the station’s well-named “Like A Version” segment. The Diplo-produced original is one of our our favorite songs by Usher, and Dirty Projectors’ signature harmonies gives the song new life. It also makes us want to listen to “Get Free,” the Amber Coffman featuring single from Major Lazer’s forthcoming Free The Universe, which is out February 19.
