Here's a celestial remix of Dirty Projectors' “(I Wanna) Feel it All” to bless your day

The original Lamp Lit Prose version of Dirty Projectors and Dear Nora's "(I Wanna) Feel It All" is a jazzy affair. Weepy horns and flutes do a lot of mood-setting, and when I listen to it, I feel like I'm flipping through a faded photo book. Today, The FADER shares the Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith remix of the track, and the electronic artist effectively takes the song's nostalgic tones and shoots them into outer space. Synths twinkle like stars, and Longstreth's verses become discombobulated words, repeating and floating gently past you. Experiencing it fells like being transported to the final Interstellar, which, if you read Longstreth's note of the song below, you'll know what I mean:

“'Feel It All' is one of my favorites on the new album. For me it’s got one of those child-is-the-father-of-the-man types of energies, the whole span of a life in the blink of an eye. It’s a song about experience, and it’s an optimistic song: reflecting back on the breadth of one’s lived moments, large and small, sweet, bitter and everything in between, and — instead of weary indifference or pessimistic disavowal — saying, 'Yes, I want to feel it all!'

“Back in the late ‘90s, Katy Davidson [of Dear Nora] was my first tape-trading friend and sort of my first songwriting mentor. Their presence in this track (which I am honored and chuffed to present) adds to that sense of the cyclical nature of time, creativity, and human relationships.”
