premiere: mnek, at night (i think about you) [blonde remix]
Press play on the track that’ll be running around your head at 3 o’clock in the morning.
O sleep, O gentle sleep, nature's soft nurse. But what about those nights when the hours breed thoughts? When rest remains aloof and all you're left with are the questions, am I sleeping? Have I slept at all? And are he/she/they [delete as applicable] awake too? That's the situation facing i-D favourite and all-round-general pop wonderkid MNEK on his latest single At Night (I Think About You). There's form for this kind of thing in the world of tortured songcraft, of course - Paul Simon, Neil Tennant and Tricky all had a go - and now we have Beyoncé collaborator MNEK, given the house treatment here by Bristol two-piece, Blonde and premiering exclusively below. Grab a coffee, adjust your body clock and press play on the remix that'll be running around your head at 3 o'clock in the morning. There's no time to sleep on it.
