Taylor Swift, months after dropping her tenth studio album, Midnights, has released a brand new remix of a recent single, “Lavender Haze.” Last month, Swift gave the record’s romantic opening track a music video treatment — and now it’s taken on a completely different energy courtesy of Felix Jaehn.
Having literally went to a Midnights-themed cycling class last night, this new “Lavender Haze” remix is perfect for both a high-intensity workout and hitting the club. In this version, Swift’s vocals are sped-up, as the instrumental is swapped for a dreamy EDM build — before auto-tuning the chorus in a non-over-the-top-way.
“I happened upon the phrase ‘lavender haze’ when I was watching Mad Men, and I looked it up, because I thought it sounded cool, and it turns out that it’s a common phrase used in the 50s where they would just describe being in love,” Swift shared on Instagram ahead of the album’s October release.
“Like, if you were in a lavender haze, that meant that you were in that all-encompassing love glow, and I thought that was really beautiful,” she added. “And I guess theoretically when you’re in the lavender haze, you’ll do anything to stay there, and not let people bring you down off of that cloud.”
