The Very Best just finished storming across the US with a few much acclaimed live shows. They even managed to throw a Secousse party in New York, pitting NYC versus London.

Here are two new remixes by UK electronic trio Metronomy and Australian indie outfit Architecture In Helsinki of the title track (which leaked a few weeks ago and featured the vocal duties of Vampire Weekend singer Ezra Koenig) from their upcoming album “Warm Heart Of Africa”. Metronomy gives us a whole different take on the track replacing some vocals but incorporating a synthline and what sounds like a tweaked up sample of their single “Heartbreaker” with its strutty bass, meanwhile the Architecture In Helsinki crew focuses on the horns from the original to keep that warm and joyful feeling.
