Lorde just went on her North American Dance Tour with her openers, Run the Jewels and Mitski. While her openers may seem unorthodox, it definitely adds variety to the type of music you will be hearing if you go to one of her concerts. Run the Jewels are a rap duo and Mitski is an indie rock singer. While all three artists may not be the same genre, a thing they all have in common are that all of them are critically-acclaimed. Lorde undeniably had one of the top albums of 2017 with Melodrama. Run the Jewels and Mitski did not drop any albums in 2017, but had highly-rated albums in 2016 with Run the Jewels 3 and Puberty 2 respectively.
Before the first day of the North American Dance Tour, Lorde released a remix of “Supercut” off of Melodrama with El-P, one half of Run the Jewels, switching up the beat and both members of the rap duo having guest verses. The “Supercut (El-P Remix)” is fantastic and adds to the collections of singles remixed off Lorde’s album. The song adds to remixes done by electronic artist, Chromeo, who re-did “Green Light”, and a version of “Homemade Dynamite” with new verses from SZA, Khalid, and Post Malone.
The song was released through a newsletter that Lorde sent to her fans. The beat is undoubtly a beat that Run the Jewels would rap over and their verses were solid. We are so happy that Lorde was willing to collaborate with them for this song and this remix is just as good as the original. The song is fantastic and a dream collaboration that we never expected but will happily enjoy. I doubt this is the last we will hear of new music from Run the Jewels or Lorde this year, so we should definitely keep our eyes (or ears) out.
