“You might laugh, you might frown, walkin’ round London town”
Lily Allen has just launched a Remix competition to win a pair of special shoes. You can download all the separate tracks that make up ‘LDN’ as a huge 262mb Zip file… for free! Then Lily will pick the best Remix, around mid-September time, so you’ll have to be quick.
If you pop onto Ebay you can get a new promo CD that has an exclusive Instrumental version of ‘LDN’. Stripped of Lily’s ear catching vocals you can explore the layered wonders of this track’s production. Calypso Guitars, triumphant Horns, summery acoustic Guitars, beautiful Piano and deft use of a Triangle all add up to one of this year’s finest Pop tunes.
Also here’s a link to watch the incredible second video for ‘LDN’ on YouTube. The “Punky Electronica, kind of Grime, kind of like New-Wave Grime but maybe like broken beats… etc” bit is a classic.
