    Cracked pop auteur A.G. Cook has shared a new remix of the 2020 Apple song “The Darkness” featuring frequent collaborator Hannah Diamond and Kero Kero Bonito‘s Sarah Bonito.

    Diamond is no stranger to “The Darkness”, and alongside Caroline Polachek she lent backing vocals to the original version. But Bonito’s contributions are entirely new, and they include a fresh first verse to open the song. She took “The Darkness” themes of reflection and The Emperor’s New Clothes and has turned the volume all the way up. “I see another girl, oh/ In my reflection,” she sings. “Is she happy? Can she see me?/ Trapped in the mirror, oh.”

    Diamond owns the second verse, and she takes the subtext of sadness and makes it explicit. She sings, “Can we go back to the start?/ When I lent you my heart/ When we were falling in love, not giving up/ Can you lend me your smile again?” Check out “The Darkness (Remix)” below.
