Neither of these two acts are strangers to making great pop music. The Knocks have been gifting us with dancefloor-elevating electronics for years, while Carly Rae Jepsen is surely on a comedown following the widespread applause she received for her 2015 album E•MO•TION.
This collaboration then is quite a gift all round and another party-ready banger to add to your playlist. Guaranteed to get you busting out your best moves, the 70s-harking Love Me Like That sees The Knocks’ B-Roc and Mr. JPatt building on the popularity of their previous bootleg remix of the Canadian pop star’s twinkling synthpop ballad All That, and firing out a fully-fledged, electro-disco stomper that’ll feature on their upcoming full-length debut 55 which comes out 5 March.
“We did a bootleg remix of [Jepsen’s] song ‘All That’ and when she heard it, she liked it so much that she made it an official,” The Knocks told Elle. “While we were wrapping this album, we had an idea for a song that we thought she would sound perfectly on, so we cold called her about collaborating and she was into it. We flew out to LA that week and recorded it together. We are really happy with how it turned out.”
Arriving hot on the heels of their top notch collaborative album tasters featuring Wyclef, Matthew Koma, POWERS and WALK THE MOON, Love Me Like That will have you thirstier than ever for The Knocks’ first full length collection and help those still suffering from post-E•MO•TION blues find some much needed respite.
