It has been nearly three years since we last had some new productions from Miike Snow. The trio of production superduo Bloodshy & Avant and singer / songwriter Andrew Wyatt have been busy on their own since then, but now the three have reunited in a big way with their new single "Heart Is Full." After unveiling the single and then the violent video, the "Paddling Out" group have unveiled the Run The Jewels remix of "Heart Is Full." This comes ahead of the group's new album iii, which is expected sometime in the beginning of 2016.
The track remains the same, but adds a verse from both Killer Mike and El-P, giving the quirky love song a different edge to it. Run The Jewels can write their own aggressive bits of romance, but this combination of rap and synth-pop is an unlikely, but welcome collaboration for one of the hottest rap groups out now.
Wyatt's catchy hooks contrast nicely against the hard and gritty verses from Killer Mike and El-P that sound like they were shot out of a cannon.
Speaking to The Fader, Wyatt spoke about how the collaboration came to be.
"When we heard that RTJ were fans and down to get on this beat I was super excited... but cautiously so. I knew this was the type of beat that they could just eat for breakfast; but I was hoping that the whole thing wouldn't come off sounding too retro. I was at Emile Haynie's house when the email with the mix came through and so we stopped what we were doing to throw it up on the speakers," Wyatt explained. "The moment Killer Mike launched into his verse, Emile and I couldn't stop smiling; he had found that flow, the rhythm to his lines that was undeniable, the flow which was so huge as to transcend any trendiness in music and just be monolithically awesome. El P continued riding that same vein-and it's like a sledgehammer."
