Florence + the Machine - Shake it Out (The Weeknd Remix)

Toronto's neo-electro-soul singer Abel Tesfaye, aka the Weeknd, has tested his hand at remixing Florence + the Machine's new single, "Shake it Out." Unfortunately for The Weeknd fans, you won't find the raw, and eerily melodic vocals from the 21-year old singer, but in true Weeknd fashion it promotes an eerie, drawn out downbeat, and enough vocal filters, you'd barely recognize Flo's voice.

The Weeknd's remix accompanies Benny Benassi's take on the track, which I have yet to listen to, but I'm expecting the pairing to be an interesting ying and yang compilation, available, along with the original on iTunes now. Florence + the Machines new album, Ceremonials, will be released October 31st.

Listen to track below, and let me know what you think of The Weeknd's creation?

  1. It's beautiful. You totally get The Weeknd vibe from it.

    He's a genius. It's hard not to like anything that he does. It's also hard to go wrong with Florence.
