Wild Beasts Deliver New Lady Gaga ‘You and I’ Remix

English indie rock group Wild Beasts offer a unique take on Lady Gaga‘s latest single, ‘You and I,’ on a new official remix.

The Wild Beasts version of ‘You and I’ is more of a mood than a song. Sporadic flourishes of piano, drum and guitar show up, but the remix is guided mostly by its relaxed beat, leading to a chilled-out vibe that would make the song a good fit for one of those ‘Pure Moods’ compilations. The remix uses only a few words from Gaga’s recording, most notably the looped vocal, “This time, baby, you and I.”

Wild Beasts singer Hayden Thorpe told the Guardian, “The unlikeness of this match was perhaps what compelled us to take it on. Gaga in many ways is the epitome of what we are not. She is the butcher to our butter knife. The essential thrill is always to keep eluding what is expected of us and what we expect of ourselves.”

We like the vibe of the Wild Beasts tune, but the problem is that it’s so far from Gaga’s version that it’s basically an entirely different song rather than a remix. Very little of the essence of ‘You and I’ comes through on the new version. It’s more like a brand-new Wild Beasts song that uses a brief Lady Gaga sample.
