Lorde’s 2018 North American tour campaign kicks off tonight, March 1, at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee. On the eve of heading out on the road for her spring run of arena shows, the young pop singer shared a new version of “Supercut,” which has received an adrenaline-fueling hip-hop remix courtesy of her tourmates and recently named Record Store Day 2018 Ambassadors, Run The Jewels.
The shiny new remix can be listened to by clicking here, and was refurbished and even re-lyricized by the hip-hop duo’s El-P. The track was initially distributed by both artists to anyone subscribed to their e-newsletters, Spin reports. According to the email sent out by the Melodrama singer, her “little nerd heart is full” thanks to the contribution her tourmates provided for one of the soundout tracks off her 2017 sophomore album.
The 2.0 version of “Supercut” is just the latest in a string of remixes that the young singer/songwriter has shared from her latest album. Melodrama’s lead single, “Green Light” received a remix from funklordz known as Chromeo last May, and also recruited the help of Khalid, Post Malone and SZA to give “Homemade Dynamite” a new look just in time for fall.
Fans should be hopeful in the possibility of seeing Lorde and Run The Jewels take the stage together to perform their new version of “Supercut” at some point during the area tour, which is scheduled to run until April 15. The two popular artists are scheduled to play over 30 dates together before her North American spring run comes to an end, and judging by the fun she’s appearing to have with the tour’s pre-production, Lorde may have a few surprising tricks up her sleeve.
Tickets for select shows on her 2018 spring tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
