Platinum-selling British band Editors have released UNKLE’s Remix for their latest single ‘Cold’.
James Lavelle’s electronic music outfit, best known for their Top 5 Charting debut album ‘Psycence Fiction’ have reworked the track and have taken it to a whole other level.
‘Cold’ is the fourth single taken from Editors‘ sixth studio album ‘Violence’, released in March via Play It Again Sam and peaking at #6 in the UK album Charts.
Listen to ‘Cold (UNKLE remix)’ by Editors on the Official Fantasy Premier League Playlist on Spotify.
The moving video for the original version of the song, directed by celebrated artist Rahi Rezvani, was shot in Iceland and stars US ballet dancer Drew Jacoby. It’s dramatic, yet stark style perfectly compliments one of standout moments on ‘Violence’.
A perfect example of ‘Violence’’s brutal sound, ‘Cold’ is a desolate, yet beautiful cry of longing and this is reflected in the video, fittingly filmed in the barren beauty of Iceland.
Vocalist Tom Smith describes the track as “the comfort and connection still found in a dying relationship. A break up song of two people not wanting to give up on the relationship” and director Rahi Rezvani portrays this poignantly, using ballet dancer Drew Jacoby’s gracefulness and Smith’s trademark operatic spasms to portray two different sides of a couple that are both together and yet painfully apart.
