Teaming up with Italian producer Stefy De Cicco, KSHMR turned back the clock to offer up a sun-kissed rendition of "Kids" that yearns for summer. The two artists produce a shimmering take on the MGMT classic, dunking it into a future house batter to deliver a radio-ready rendition. It's the vocal, however, that allows the single to erupt into the stratosphere. Covering a song of this magnitude is no easy task, but Toronto-born singer-songwriter MKLA does an extraordinary job of paying homage to MGMT's lyrics while delivering a unique version all her own.
KSHMR also took to Twitter to share the inspiration behind his "Kids" cover, which is rooted in his philanthropical endeavors. He announced that he is raising awareness for Hyderapals, an organization that provides education and care for kids in Hyderabad, India at the Patashala School. "Many families who benefit from Hyderapals are those of migrant workers who've lost their land and homes," he wrote.
