Just yesterday I was listening to RAC‘s new remix on the Verve Remixed compilation and thought to myself, “It’d be really nice to hear an original from André to see what he’s been up to other than remixes lately.” Well, the cosmos have given a quick reply to my internal question, as the preview to the new single from RAC was posted to Soundcloud this morning featuring vocals from Bloc Party’s Kele and New York duo MNDR. “Let Go” is a summery Pop jam, with a tropical feel and lovely male/female vocal interaction. Looking forward to hearing the whole thing when it’s released next Tuesday.
