Halsey unleashes an official remix of her single “Colors” by electronic dance music artist and producer Audien. You can listen to it below.
Following up notable remixes for Nick Jonas, Michael Jackson, and Coldplay, Audien adds heavenly piano, orchestral production, and a seismic drop to the song, seamlessly transferring it to the dance floor in the process.
“My label mate Halsey is an artist that kills the precedent and inspires the rest of us to take risks,” Audien tells Complex Magazine. “Accordingly, I was excited to tackle ‘Colors’ and explore some sonic hues that I previously hadn’t.”
Grammy nominated Producer/DJ Audien hails from Mystic, Connecticut. His most recent single, Something Better (ft. Lady Antbellum) hit number one at US Dance Radio and crossed over to Top 40 with airplay on station including Z100, KIIS, and Sirius Hits 1. In 2014, his remix of Bastille’s Pompeii became the most played track at Electric Daisy Carnival and Coachella, leading to Billboard to label it “the song that ruled festival season.” A resident DJ at The Wynn Hotel’s XS Nightclub in Las Vegas, Audien can be seen this summer at Lollapalooza, Kentucky Derby Festival, and Sunset Music Festival.
On the heels of the “Colors” Audien remix, Halsey storms the stage at the 2016 MTV Movie Awards. She’ll be performing “Castle” from her gold-certified full-length debut Badlands (Astralwerks) and on the soundtrack to The Huntsman: Winter’s War-out in theaters April 22 (hear it on the film’s trailer HERE). Tune in at 8pm ET/PT on MTV on Sunday April 10,
Paving the way for her North American summer headline tour, Halsey will make the festival rounds this spring. She’ll perform at Coachella (April 16 & April 23), Sweetlife Festival (May 14), and Bonnaroo (June 9 & June 11) before launching the Badlands Tour July 6 in Orlando, FL. See her full schedule below.
Recently, she covered Billboard Magazine, opening up in an intimate interview. She also recently caught up with Teen Vogue for another in-depth conversation.
Halsey has transformed pop music into her own apocalyptic playground. Constantly engaging with her rabid audience online (exceeding 2 million on Instagram alone!), she’s quietly become a cultural trailblazer. Her full-length debut, Badlands, bowed at #2 on the Billboard Top 200 and achieved an RIAA gold certification. She’s burned through venues alongside The Weeknd and Imagine Dragons in addition to selling out every headline tour to date, including New York’s iconic Madison Square Garden. Halsey has ignited the stage on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show with Justin Bieber, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and Last Call with Carson Daly. She will be the recipient of the “Breakthrough Artist Award” at Music Biz 2016.
