British production duo Chase and Status have a new LP, Brand New Machine, ready to drop on October 7th. You can pre-order the album now on Casablanca Records (in both standard and deluxe editions), as well as check out this exclusive, fresh remix of the album cut "International" from none other than Skrillex. The dubstep whiz does his thing on the dancehall-flavored cut, lacing it with laserlike synths and tight builds that explode into unhinged drops of pure pop delight.

"Chase and Status and I were playing Hideout Festival in Croatia last year and they showed me a rough of this song – and ever since then, I've had the 'International' vocal hook stuck in my head," Skrillex tells Rolling Stone. "I wanted to make a track that worked well not only for festivals but in small rooms as well. Was stoked they asked me to do it!"

“San Francisco Mabel Joy”

Mickey Newbury | 1969

A country-folk song of epic proportions, "San Francisco Mabel Joy" tells the tale of a poor Georgia farmboy who wound up in prison after a move to the Bay Area found love turning into tragedy. First released by Mickey Newbury in 1969, it might be more familiar through covers by Waylon Jennings, Joan Baez and Kenny Rogers. "It was a five-minute song written in a two-minute world," Newbury said. "I was told it would never be cut by any artist ... I was told you could not use the term 'redneck' in a song and get it recorded."
