Has it really been seven years since The Killers released “When You Were Young”? Yes, it has. The Las Vegas synth-rockers’ lead Sam’s Town single has now been dusted off and remixed by dance king Calvin Harris for the band’s upcoming Direct Hits collection (out November 11), and a rather lengthy preview of the new version — two minutes and 42 seconds, to be exact — is available to hear. “When You Were Young,” originally co-produced by Flood and Alan Moulder with The Killers, was already a solid, uplifting track in its own right. In Harris’ hands, the song is transformed into a glorious dance floor anthem.
The remix will appear on the deluxe version of Direct Hits, along with the original demo of “Mr. Brightside.” Head below to hear something old become something new.
