*** EXCLUSIVE FIRST-LISTEN WORLD PREMIERE ***

Mika's back!

Dutch DJ Don Diablo has remixed MIKA's much-anticipated, brand-new single, titled "We Are Golden," which is the title track of the singer's forthcoming sophomore LP. Diablo does what he does best. Rework pop tunes into blazing dance floor stompers. And this one is not any different. Download three different versions of Diablo's revamp completely guilt-free.

"We Are Golden" features the famed Andrae Crouch Gospel Choir, which is mostly known for their feature in Madonna’s "Like A Prayer."  Recorded between London and Los Angeles over the last two years, "We Are Golden" also features guest appearances by the likes of The Seawind Horns ("Thriller," "Off The Wall"), Imogen Heap, Owen Pallet from Final Fantasy/Arcade Fire and Stuart Price. (Listen to the radio edit of original here.)

I'd done what I hate others doing and prejudged this as something I'd hate, but that makes me even more impressed. Really enjoying the single & yes this Don Diablo mix makes it ever more fun. I can't wait till it gets to Friday and I can play it.

Great stuff. You could though use the official Mika site for the link to listen to the 'proper' song instead of Youtube though:

I swear, this kid is a genius! Not a huge Mika fan, but this remix is of the charts. Mucho gracias. This will be on repeat!

They should change the name of the track to: Don Diablo is Golden! Dream mix...

Thanks for the remixes, Arjan! Love the original, love these, too. I think all the youtube versions have been taken down now, though.

Am I the only one really not liking this song?
I am VERY disappointed. Just not feeling it. I hope the rest of the cd is better.
Btw... I am a Mika fan. Saw him at the Troubadour when he played L.A.

Yes, I must agree somewhat with Mike. Love Mika to-death, but I've given "We Are Golden" quite a few listens, both Don's Edit and the album edit. Not quite sinking in like the "Life in Cartoon Motion" did... I heard the rest of the album is quite good, so let's remain optimistic!
