David Guetta Teams Up With Skylar Grey For “Shot Me Down”: Hear A Snippet

Even as the EDM craze has begun to declineDavid Guetta has managed to stay busy — producing tracks on recent LPs for Britney Spears and Lady Gaga, however dubious their quality — but the French DJ and superproducer is still cranking out his own tunes as well, and for his latest single, he’s roped in singer-songwriter Skylar Grey for a dance version of the 1966 hit “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down),” originally performed by both Cher and Nancy Sinatra.

The full thing drops on Beatport on January 20, but until then, there’s a little teaser video that makes it sound pretty solid; at least, there’s pummeling electro beats and luxuriously husky vocals from the reliable Grey, so there’s that.

Watch it up top.
