The original version of Chet Faker’s “1998” helped catapult the indie producer to new heights. The proof lies in this rework: Faker enlisted Los Angeles native and ascendant star BANKS for the song’s remix, which features a new verse and some idyllic harmonies from the songstress.
The new “1998” premiered on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show this week, and precedes Faker’s upcoming fall tour. You can find tickets and dates for those shows on his website. Stream the rework (and compare it with the original) below.
