Steve Aoki has teamed up with GATTÜSO and Aukoustics to create a modern reimagination of R.E.M’s “Losing My Religion,” featuring MKLA. MLKA’s euphonic vocals glide over the animated beat, as she sings the instantly recognizable lyrics. With a driving beat and energetic dance floor drops, the group fashions the ideal summer anthem.
“Losing My Religion is my favorite of all R.E.M. songs, and I loved them growing up as a kid,” Aoki shares. “It was time to bring it back and make a 2021 version for the dancefloor that people wouldn’t expect. We flipped it and made it special.” GATTÜSO adds, “Steve had a clear vision for how it would need to be sculpted and I learned a lot in the process. It’s great to see this plan come together after a lot of work, and I’m excited for everyone to hear it.”
