twenty one pilots Reimagine Chlorine For The Løcatiøn Sessiøns
twenty one pilots have unveiled a gorgeous new rendition of their smash single Chlorine, reimagining the song for what they’re cryptically calling the Løcatiøn Sessiøns.
The new track’s name in full is actually Chlorine (19.4326° N, 99.1332° W), which seemingly points to Mexico City when you search the co-ordinates in the title. While official details of what this all means are pretty much non-existent right now, fans are theorising that the particular version of Chlorine was recorded there earlier in the year in – you guessed it – Mexico City.
In fact, back in May the duo – Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun – played an incredibly private acoustic gig there (performing Smithereens, Legend, Cut My Lip, My Blood and Holding On To You, as well as Chlorine), so does this mean we’ll perhaps get a full album of these exact songs reimagined? Let’s wait and see…
In the meantime, enjoy this:
Here’s the original version, if you need a reminder.
twenty one pilots will return to the UK this summer to headline Reading & Leeds in August.
We recently asked Tyler what fans can expect from their debut headline slot at one of the UK’s biggest festivals, and he enthused:
“The culture of music in the UK is something we’ve always looked up to. Some of our favourite performances of festivals and stuff has been over here. In a sense, when you live over in the States, you kind of look over at the UK as a very credible, cool, authentic music scene.
“It’s tough to get everything in our live show to translate over into a festival set, but there’s something special about festivals, and something special about being outside, too. And that set is going to be like no other set we’ve ever played. There’s definitely an air of unpredictability, and you don’t really know exactly what to expect. You’d be a fool to assume that everybody is there to watch you – or even know who you are. So there’s a bit of a competitive edge to it, because there’s so many awesome bands on the bill, and so being motivated to rise above that giant pool of talent, and to make your mark, is something that we’re really excited to step up to that challenge.
“The last time we played Reading was one of my favourite sets ever. I did a stage-dive and climbed over the top of 10,000 people, and had a few people pulling on me in the process, but I rather enjoyed it! I thought it was a lot of fun, and the energy was amazing. I can’t wait to do it all over again – we’ll see what happens this time…”
