Cobra Starship returned in late August with Icona Pop-assisted earworm “Never Been In Love”. The first taste of the enduring pop/rock outfit’s fifth LP features a killer sample of Fatboy Slim‘s ’90s dance classic “Praise You” and has been steadily gaining ground on radio. The infectious collaboration should get a new burst of momentum thanks to a surprise remix.

The Swedish duo took it upon themselves to overhaul Cobra Starship’s latest and they inject the track with the frenzied energy that made “I Love It” a worldwide smash in 2012. The ladies of Icona Pop leave Gabe Saporta‘s ’90s house-infused anthem largely intact, they simply mix it with their tried-and tested-brand of electro. Listen to the future hit after the jump.
