LeAnn Rimes releases ‘Spaceship’ remixes with DJ Dave Audé

Original version featured on most recent album

LeAnn Rimes has partnered with Grammy Award-winning producer and DJ Dave Audé to release the dance remixes for her focus track, “Spaceship,” from her recently released album God’s Work. The up-beat, electronic undertones featured in the remixes bring a reimagined sound to the all-encompassing track that Rimes released earlier this year. The track taps into a full range of emotions including grief, sadness, anger, and hope.

“It’s always fun reimagining songs with Dave Audé, and the remix of ‘spaceship’ is probably my favorite, to date,” Rimes states. “We were both nervous to touch this song because we know how special it is, but I believe we nailed it! I danced and then cried happy tears when I received the final mix, and it was at that moment, I knew, it was ready to be released into the world.”

“I’ve been remixing LeAnn Rimes’ songs for two decades and LeAnn and her songs keep getting better and better,” shares Audé. “She is undoubtedly one of the most naturally gifted vocalists of all time, and as a producer it’s hard not to fall in love with every note. Remixing ‘spaceship’ was one of the scariest moments of my career as I believe it’s one of the best written and produced songs I’ve gotten my hands on, so I can’t wait to start hammering it in my sets!”

The remix follows the September release of the pair’s cover of Alanis Morissette’s “Uninvited” that is featured on Audé’s debut album that dropped last month.

Spaceship” is the opening track of Rimes’ highly anticipated 19th album which was released on September 16th. Written and produced by Rimes and her longtime collaborator Darrell Brown, the 12-track album features an eclectic group of accomplished artists, including Ziggy Marley, Mickey Guyton, Aloe Blacc, Ben Harper, Ledisi, Sheila E., Robert Randolph, Táta Vega, and more, that all contribute to the genre-bending sounds featured throughout. Described by Rimes as her “journey of reclamation,” the project includes a mix of ethereal, rhythmic, and brutally honest songs that take each listener on their own unique journey.

Rimes is also getting ready to kick off Joy: The Holiday Tour on December 2nd in Verona, NY making stops in Riverside, IA on December 9th, Nashville on December 10th, Lincoln, OR on December 16-17, Airway Heights, WA on December 18th and wrapping in Pala, CA on December 22nd. The tour will bring fans together for festive songs mixed with some of Rimes’ greatest hits and new releases from God’s Work.
