Icona Pop Get “Ready For The Weekend” With New Club Smash

Swedish electropop duo Icona Pop turned their Charli XCX-penned ode to reckless living, “I Love It,” into the song of the summer — and now, they’ve recorded a surefire anthem for the weekend, too. The club mix of “Ready For The Weekend,” which just premiered via Pitchfork, is six minutes of throbbing house beats and chopped ‘n’ screwed vocals: It’s darker and more muscular than the euphoric “I Love It,” but just as well-suited for the dancefloor. Hear the track after the jump.

“Grab somebody, go and live it up!” the girls chant over glitchy, dubby instrumentation. If anything could get hordes of partygoers ready for the weekend, it’s this.

“Ready For The Weekend” drops tomorrow on Beatport, with their upcoming EP The Iconic (featuring “I Love It” alongside some previously unreleased tracks) due out October 16.
