To quickly recap the Years & Years and Tove Lo news of yesterday, Olly Alexander posted an Instagram pic of himself with Tove announcing that the Swedish songbird had hopped onto a new version of Y&Y’s single “Desire.” The song, initially released in fall 2014, became Years & Years’ breakthrough single in their home country of the UK after it cracked the Top 40 and peaked at #22.

The new rendition, now with added Lo, premiered on UK radio this morning and you can catch a rip of it below.

UPDATE: Said rip has gotten le yank off SoundCloud. But we can tell you that the second verse, sung by Tove, has just slightly altered lyrics — mainly, a word or two has been tweaked to make it more from a second vocalist’s perspective. CLEVER.

Keep your ears peeled.
