With its latest single “Celebrate”, Empire of the Sun might be taking a run at stateside fame for itself, with a remix series featuring American EDM star Steve Aoki among mostly Australian producers.
“It was about building this bridge between our two worlds and doing it in an organic way,” explained Aoki of the melding of rock and EDM in the new collaboration.
The track comes from upcoming remix album, ‘Recharged,’ which is culled from the band’s last studio full-length, 2012 release ‘Living Things.’
The clip’s message is a six-point plan aimed specifically at party-going ravers in regards to popular party drug MDMA, more commonly known as “Molly.”
Aoki debuted the Linkin Park collaboration, ‘A Light That Never Comes,’ during Japan’s Summer Sonic music festival.
