Following their impromptu Coachella collaboration this year, Phoenix have gone to second base in their love affair with R.Kelly by agreeing for him to appear on a remix of 'Trying To Be Cool'.
The remix essentially involves R Kelly singing along to the chorus. Emphasis is on the word 'featuring' rather than 'remix'. But hey, it's Phoenix and R.Kelly. Forget the latter's previous dodgy escapades and it's a collaboration made in the gates of heaven.
'Trying To Be Cool''s R.Kelly remix is available on iTunes from 20th August.
