The epic new remix sees Estonian DJ & producer Syn Cole put his own spin and the original and reminding listeners of the long nights on the dancefloor. Syn Cole puts the pairs catchy vocals front and centre whilst adding his thumping bass and euphoric production which take the song to new heights. Syn Cole is known for his remixes of some of the biggest songs this decade from the likes of Katy Perry, Ed Sheeran, Miley Cyrus and Charlie Puth.
‘Slow Grenade’ is taken from Ellie’s recent #1 selling album Brightest Blue which was adored by fans and critics alike. Brightest Blue, included a number of recent releases alongside a plethora of new songs, with the album being set in two parts, Brightest Blue (executively produced by Ellie Goulding & Joe Kearns) and EG.0 respectively. Across the two halves Ellie enlisted a number of writers and producers to help create the finished product, including the likes of Tobias Jesso Jr., Starsmith, ILYA, serpentwithfeet, Patrick Wimberly (of Chairlift) and Jim Eliot amongst others.
Explaining her reasoning behind the double album Ellie says “I’m fascinated by the mechanics of writing a big pop song, but it’s something different from what’s on Brightest Blue. EG.0 is a collection of songs that I've written as a somewhat of a character, where it's literally like my alter ego. I liked the idea of being able to play a really strong powerful woman, which wasn’t the case on Brightest Blue.” Though her voice is confident and passionate on Brightest Blue, it explores her insecurities - but EG.0 is pure bombast. “They really show my craft as a writer because it ain’t easy writing those big American songs - and I’ve learned to be proud of that in a different way.”
