DJ Tiësto turns Horan’s acoustic track into a club tune.

In September, One Direction’s Niall Horan surprised his fans by releasing his debut solo single, This TownThe track finds him strumming a guitar, reminiscing about a childhood sweetheart. “Yesterday I thought I saw your shadow running round / It’s funny how things never change in this old town,” he sings. The song had been accompanied by a stripped down, black-and-white video of the Irish singer performing with “one mic” and “one take.” With the track’s release came the announcement that the artist had signed a solo deal with Capitol Records.

Ever since, the artist has been surprising his fans with TV appearances, funny music videos and of course, the news of his collaboration with Shawn Mendes. However, not a single person was ready for this surprise. The singer had collaborated with Tiësto for a remix of his single.

If you have heard this song and are anything like us, you probably thought that it is a perfect heartbreak song. But, DJ Tiësto saw potential and set to work. The Dutch EDM producer and turntablist remixed it, gave it a chunky beat, shaved a minute of the original track, all without distorting the vocals. And, just like that, from a song that is perfect for when you sit in your PJs, scarfing down ice-cream and comfort food, we have a track that we can dance to.

The singer shared the collaboration on his Spotify account, where you can hear the full track. Here is a little sneak though:
