Florence + the Machine has unveiled a new remix of her Dance Fever single "Heaven Is Here" by IDLES.

IDLES' remix of "Heaven Is Here" follows Florence + the Machine's Dance Fever (Poem Versions) release in August, and The Blessed Madonna's remix of "Free" in May.

"IDLES are one of my favourite bands and I’ve been wanting to work on something together for a while," Florence Welch says. "It might be strange for people to think but I see a lot of symbiosis in what we do in terms of live performance. Connection above all else. Joyful rage and togetherness. A lot of people wished that Heaven Is Here was longer. And I think IDLES have done the perfect job at turning it into a much demanded dance track that loses nothing of the hex at its heart."

Mark Bowen of IDLES adds, "Dance Fever is quite a cathartic album for me, speaking a lot to the yearning for the release of performing but also introspecting on the need itself. it lives on the line of tension between the need for release and getting it (is that not the best bit?) no more is this encapsulated on "Heaven Is Here". I wanted to sit with that tension but then also lavish in the release on this remix."

IDLES' remix of Florence + the Machine's "Heaven Is Here" is out now.
