This past summer, pianist Robert Glasper’s Black Radio proved to be a critical smash, and his name stands in good company with the contributors behind a new remix of “Twice”. The Little Dragon cover was recorded during the Black Radio sessions, and a remixed version from The Roots’ ?uestlove will be on the upcoming Black Radio Recovered: The Remix EP, due out October 9th via Blue Note Records.

While the Robert Glasper Experiment have covered this one live, with vocoded lead over the flurries of piano and thudding percussion, the velvety vocals on this version come from Solange Knowles. ?uesto and his Roots compadres add subterranean bass wobbles, chiming bells like calls to meditation, and a mournful string outro. Stream it below.
