Charli XCX is auto-tuned to the Gods in Jim-E Stack’s new song “Deadstream” featuring Rostam.
"Why do I have to let you go? Why do we have to make it known," Charli XCX's computerized voice sings in DJ Jim-E Stack's new tune, which sees tinkering from former Vampire Weekend member Rostam Batmanglij.
It premiered on Zane Lowe's Beats 1 on Tuesday (Nov. 8).
“It all came about so naturally,” Stack said of the '80s-inspired electro tune. He says Charli took it upon herself to lay down fresh vocals to the original in collaboration with Rostam.
“Rostam and I had some mutual friends and we naturally met," Stack continued. He asked me for the instrumental to the original cause he had an idea.”
He added: “It just kind of happened.”
