R3HAB has teamed up with one of the leading dance music singers/songwriters - Aussie Amba Shepherd (multiple collaborations with the likes of Tiësto, Porter Robinson, Hardwell, Afrojack, to name a few).
"Smells Like Teen Spirit" is a dance cover of Nirvana's most famous song, and a very special one from R3HAB's youth.
While this version will, no doubt, be considered sacrilegious by Nirvana fans, it speaks volumes about the power of Kurt Cobain’s vision that “Smells Like Teen Spirit” is still resonating with young people nearly 30 years later....
Here's what they said about the song:
"Growing up, I heard all kinds of music. Some songs stuck out to me the way they became part of my youth. That's what exactly this song is for me. 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' has always been special for that reason. Being able to work on something made by legends like Nirvana together with Amba was a great experience, and I hope our fans and listeners will enjoy it." - R3HAB
"I'm so excited about this new collaboration with R3HAB! I wanted to make an unexpected electronic version of the iconic track, so I recorded my vocal as an indie chill demo. Just keys, subtle paddy synths and beats, and I sent it over to Fadil. He produced such an incredible track, and this is when this collab was born. It was amazing to work with him, and I look forward to more music together soon." - Amba Shepherd
