Blood Orange Remixed Sia’s ‘Chandelier,’ And It’s A Weeper

I'll swing from your chandelier of tears.

Blood Orange (a.k.a. Dev Hynes) has released what he’s calling a “remix” of Sia’s “Chandelier,” but it’s basically a whole new song that samples the smash hit — and it’s pretty sad-making.

“Chandelier,” although it sounds like a kind of YOLO club jam, is actually anything but — it’s a dark song about being a “party girl” and the toll that that can take on one’s soul.

Blood Orange’s remix of the track brings out the tension and gloom of the original, laying it out in a more obvious — but no less effective — way. Check it out below:
