Ellie Goulding & Burns Rework Midnight Star’s “Midas Touch”: Hear The ‘Halcyon Days’ Track

964e4e979cabc4fd9f20fd166e4f0ad3 Ellie Goulding & Burns Rework Midnight Star’s “Midas Touch”: Hear The ‘Halcyon Days’ Track

British DJ/producer Burns is no stranger to working with pop divas: he’s remixed everyone from Lana Del Rey (“National Anthem”) to Charli XCX (“You (Ha Ha Ha)”) to Nelly Furtado (“Night Is Young”) to Iggy Azalea (“Work”). This time around he’s teamed up with Ellie Goulding, for her Halcyon Days reworking of “Midas Touch” by ’80s funk/R&B group Midnight Star (of “Operator” fame).

The result is a far moodier affair than the original 1986 version. Of particular note is the way the pair flip this pop trifle into something darker, with ominous synths throughout and Ellie and Burns crooning on the chorus, “Baby, let me touch your body and your soul.”

Listen to Ellie and Burns’ version of “Midas Touch,” and catch the original Midnight Star video, below.
