Flume Remixes Sam Smith's "Lay Me Down"
Sam Smith's latest hit "Lay Me Down" gets a mind-bending Flume remix. Listen now.

The remixes for Sam Smith’s new single “Lay Me Down” keep on coming. Flume delivered a typically mind-bending overhaul/deconstruction last week and now Tiesto serves up something a little more accessible. The Dutchman gives the ballad a big-room makeover, but it’s surprisingly mellow by his standards. Which actually suits the song perfectly.

After ruling dance floors for decades, Tiesto made a belated US breakthrough in 2014 with sixth LP A Town Called Paradise. It produced hit singles “Red Lights” and “Wasted,” and peaked at number 18 on the Billboard 200. The DJ has kept busy since then with remixes for other artists (Charli XCX’s “Break The Rules,” for example) and club singles like KSHMR collaboration “Secrets.” Listen to his Sam Smith overhaul below.
