Meg & Dia have released ‘happysad remixes’ today through Pure Noise Records. The mini album includes remixed versions of their songs “Better At Being Young”, “Teenagers”, “American Spirit” and “Dear Heart”. ‘happysad remixes’ is now available to stream HERE.
The original versions of the songs can be found on Meg & Dia’s newest album ‘happysad’, which was released summer of 2019. It’s the most collaborative record of their career and found their friendship rekindled, their creative spark reignited and their musical horizons expanded.
Remixes on ‘happysad remixes’ come from Mark Maxwell, Sj, Nurko, and West Coast Massive – each bringing their own unique sound to the table and breathing new life into the songs.
“One of my favorite things about making music, is collaborating and exploring with other artists, says Dia. “This is one way I learn about different forms of production, songwriting, storytelling, and vision. There are so many different ways a song can take form – the lyrics and melodies stay the same – but the way it feels can change remarkably. We have teamed up with some amazing artists and producers, many of them friends, and are excited to share these new renditions of some of our favorite songs off of “happysad.”
“The way that technology is changing music is magic to me. I listen, record, and write music completely differently than the way I used to because of the tools we have available,” explains Meg. It was an absolute pleasure having the producers remix our songs. I think they did a lovely job. I was traveling through Rome the first time I listened to the remixes, and I couldn’t stop jumping around my AirBNB, dancing to our music! I’m so excited for our fans to hear how these talented folks have reimagined our songs!”
