Kings of Leon - "The Immortals" (Royksopp Remix)


Voila, the nine-minute Royksopp remix of Kings of Leon’s “The Immortals” you’ve always wanted!

The Norwegian electro duo have to execute quite a few alchemistic production tricks to make trancey rave gold out of KoL’s original Southern rock anthem, but they’re more than capable – pitchshifted, chopped-and-screwed vocals and plenty of synthesized atmospheric effects maintain the anthemic massiveness you probably like Kings of Leon for and shift the whole thing into another genre entirely.

Both artists’ talent is visible here – Royksopp’s deft command of maximalist techno and KoL’s skill at classic-rock songcraft are both on display. Check it out.
