Walk the Moon's hit "Anna Sun" gets a busy, blissful revisiting in this Trouble Productions Remix from Albert Hammond Jr. of the Strokes and producer Gus Oberg. The remix shimmers with dense yet washed-out vocals, sun-drenched synths and fluttering drum programming that propels the original melody to surreal heights.

For Walk the Moon, the attention around their single has been unexpected and exciting. "We're psyched about how quickly 'Anna Sun' is spreading and how positive the response has been!" says frontman Nicholas Petricca. "Also, our heads exploded a little when we think of Albert and Gus remixing the track. Huge honor!"

Walk the Moon are set to release their self-titled debut album on June 19th through RCA.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
