Icona Pop’s “I Love It” dominated dance floors last year with its defiantly joyous chorus and an all-out commitment to total fun, but for Tiësto, the party isn’t over just yet. As the DJ and producer was curating his upcoming Club Life – Volume Three Stockholm, he was particularly struck by the Swedish duo’s empowering anthem and went to work on his own vision for the track.
“I really liked the song from the first time I heard it,” Tiësto tells Rolling Stone. “The girls are from Stockholm, so I felt the special connection to make this track for the compilation.” Despite his love for the original, Tiësto gave the song a new flavor with a big overhaul. “I completely changed the melody of the track,” he says. “It’s an entirely new bassline, melody and a different drop. The drop is very old school Tiësto, it’s very melodic and it goes off.”
Club Life – Volume Three Stockholm will be released digitally on June 18th and physically on June 25th.
