This isn’t so much a remix as a rebirth. Orbit’s new edit is almost unfathomably better then the cut that made the album. The extended introduction lends the song an eerily beautiful sensibility, while Brit’s vocal no longer sounds like it was recorded on an iPhone. Instead, the diva’s delivery is soft, pretty and suitably otherworldly. Listen to the new and vastly improved version of “Alien” after the jump.
