The Fratellis’ hit single “Need a Little Love” has been remixed by Mercury Prize-winning electronic act Rudimental, available now via Cooking Vinyl. The original version of the track appears on the multi-platinum Glasgow band’s acclaimed new album Half Drunk Under A Full Moon, a BBC Radio 2 Album Of The Week. The Fratellis have performed “Need A Little Love” on The Late Late Show with James Corden and The Kelly Clarkson Show, and also on The Chris Evans Breakfast Show on Virgin Radio.
“Experiment. That’s one of the defining factors that I’ve learnt, is that you can get something from the most unlikely places,” comments Amir Amor of Rudimental. According to bandmate Kesi Dyden, “When we heard the original of The Fratellis track we’re remixing, we was like, wow. It’s a great song, but it’s so different from what we make and our sound. It’s quite exciting for us to step out of our comfort zone.” Jon Fratelli says, “We had a lot of fun collaborating with Rudimental on this remix. It’s not something we’ve really ever done before so we are pleased with how well it turned out.”
