We all thought we were going to have to wait until 2011 to hear that La Roux-featuring remix of Chromeos Hot Mess, but the fine folks at Stereogum have thrown a wrench into our plans. The new version of Business Casuals leadoff track isnt as remixed as we expected it to be, but La Roux aka Ms. Elly Jackson does add the vocal touch that we anticipated last week.
She first hits the mic at the 45-second mark, singing, If Id only known the attention you crave/could this be the reason Im runnin away?/So Im breaking the chain/because love isnt meant to complain, and returns for a little call-and-response with Chromeos Dave-1 in the second verse. The new video hasnt dropped, and were still not sure if Jackson will do any synchronized swimming in it, but the track itself is pop-tronically delicious and available for you listening pleasure at Stereogum.com. The 12-inch single which features other remixes by Duck Sauce and Tiga will be available for purchase on January 17th. Check out the video for the original track below.
