Listen: Active Child vs. Ellie Goulding 'Hanging On' (Betablock3r Remix)

Ellie Goulding 2013

Active Child's brilliant "Hanging On" received a mighty boost forward when Ellie Goulding covered the tune last year and added a dose of bittersweet melancholy to the song. Los Angeles producer Betablock3r decided to stir up the two and mash up Active Child's original with Ellie's revamp to create a mesmerizing break up ballad of the finest kind. It's an intensely atmospheric duet that takes on a whole new meaning with Pat and Ellie harmonizing lyrics like, "I just can't keep hanging on/To you and me/I just don't know what is wrong/With you and me." It's goosebump good. In related Ellie Goulding news, the British songstress wrapped her sold out U.S. tour last week with a massive show at Hollywood's Palladium. She will be heading to Europe and Asia next (and if you're in the U.K. make sure to check this out.)
