After months of waiting, not one but two appetite whetting clips and a world premiere during the Swedish House Mafia takeover of Pete Tong’s BBC1 radio show two weeks ago, finally the vocal edit of Sebastian Ingrosso & Alesso – Calling (Lose My Mind) is available for popular consumption via iTunes and Spotify. The lucky man chosen to do the vocals on this iconic track was lately revealed to be none other than One Republic’s Ryan Tedder, who you might remember from the remixed version and Timbaland produced Apolgize. Seems the guy is fond of lending his pipes to songs with one word titles that involve communication.
Perhaps the hype made the level of expectation too high for this track, but in this case the original version that we all know and love may just take the cake in the end. Everyone loves to sing along, but not sure here if the vocals add enough to justify the wait. However Alesso and Ingrosso clearly have one of the top progressive tracks of 2011 and they’re justifiably bringing it home in 2012.
