Premiere: Lana Del Rey - West Coast (ZHU Remix)

New single gains a deft house re-work...

Lana Del Rey - our latest cover star, doncha know - has always sought out the finest producers, introducing inspiring outside influences into her music.

On forthcoming album 'Ultraviolence' for example, the American artist works with The Black Keys' own Dan Auerbach, resulting in some startling music.

Alongside this, though, the singer seems able to call upon the finest underground talent for a slew of remixes. In the past, the likes of Four Tet, Joy Orbison and more have been able to tackle her work, pulling the music in fresh directions.

'Ultraviolence' high point 'West Coast' recently found its way online, and - with the album itself still lingering tantalisingly on the horizon - Lana Del Rey has commissioned a new remix.

ZHU is based on the West Coast himself, allowing the perennial sunshine to slowly bleach his house sounds into strange new colours.

Tackling 'West Coast', the essential chassis of the song remains but virtually everything else has been altered - joyously playing with Lana Del Rey's vocal, this is a peak time remix which will no doubt find its way into some surprising sets this summer.
