Fatboy Slim, whose real name is Norman Cook, stated that the two of them finished the song earlier this month while at the Snowbombing Festival in Austria.
“I’ve seen [Elba] DJ many times, that’s how we ended up knowing each other,” Cook said. “We share the same management so we’re often on the bill together, and that’s how we became pals.”
Of the new song, Cook stated, “I’ve just done something with Idris Elba for his next film, which is quite interesting. I don’t know if it’s under wraps so I don’t want to get in trouble by saying too much. It’s called Bastille Day, and we’ve written a song together, and Idris sings on it which is fun.”Read more to hear a clip of the new track:
