After Phoenix brought out R. Kelly during their Coachella set this year, a remix of the group's "Trying To Be Cool" featuring R. Kelly has just been released.
This collaboration was very much hinted at in an interview with Radio.com after the group's closing show at Lollapalooza. Guitarist Laurent Brancowitz said the band were "big fans," and that the group sent Kelly mash-ups of his music as well as there's - hence Kelly's joining them onstage. They were then asked if they were to release any music in the future with R. Kelly, which fellow guitarist Mazzalai replied, "Yeah, maybe. Maybe. Maybe. Maybe soon you will know."
