When I first got wind of this rework, my brain exploded a little. You see, I’ve covered both Rhye and Ryan Hemsworth extensively here on TMN: the former’s sultry R&B/Sade-like textures make me melt while the latter’s woozy, kinetic productions never seem to let me down. And now you’re telling me that they’ve joined forces and made a glowing, soulful remix of “Open”? The original version was enough to blow my mind. My two-word response: Hell Yes.

Rhye’s highly anticipated debut LP, Woman, drops March 5th via Loma Vista.
