English songstress Natasha Khan loves her pop music, and on this remix of new track "All Your Gold," Khan's Bat for Lashes gets a groovy reworking from discophiles Hercules and Love Affair. Percolating synths bubble alongside a bold piano progression and Khan's mesmerizing voice, but the vibe here is no-frills funk.

"I feel like on each album I always strive to write a good pop song, with a good chorus and a pop song structure," says Khan. "This one was a challenge but in the end I had loads of fun and I feel like it came out as it should have done."

The original version of "All Your Gold" is on Bat for Lashes' upcoming album The Haunted Man, out October 22nd in the U.S. and October 15th worldwide. You can preorder The Haunted Man here.

“Santa Monica”

Everclear | 1996

After his brother and girlfriend both died of drug overdoses, Art Alexakis -- depressed and hooked on drugs himself -- jumped off the Santa Monica Pier in California, determined to die. "It was really stupid," said the Everclear frontman, who would further explore his personal emotional journey in the song "Father of Mine." "I went under the water. Then I said, 'I don't wanna die.'" The song, declaring "Let's swim out past the breakers/and watch the world die," was intended as a manifesto for change, Alexakis said. "Let the world do what it's gonna do and just live on our own."
