It may only be Tuesday, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to enjoy The Weeknd remix of “Shake It Out” by Florence + The Machine. The original version of the tune may be bombastic and epic (as we’d expect from Flo and the gang), but the Canadian R&B singer’s spin on this haunting tune chills it down a few degrees, distorting the vocals so that they come across as even more ethereal, while still retaining Florence Welch’s trademark dark-yet-airy loveliness. The revamped Ceremonials single will join one by Benny Benassi on iTunes, available October 2.
