Merely a year after entering the limelight as part of Avicii’s debut on Future Music Magazine’s ”In The Studio” series, the official preview to the Swede’s sought-after take on Eric Turner has at last found its way onto the inter-web, courtesy of VEVO. Dealing in elusive synth work and emotive vocals, his remix of ‘Dancing In My Head’ sees Tim Bergling outsource his floor filling intellect for a second appearance of his Tom Hangs alias, adding that infectiously melodic play to Turner’s enchanting top line.

With the final preview revealing extra vocals to make for a radio-friendlier version, one can only hope that the final release will bring a dub or an instrumental version into the equation in hopes of also satisfying that of the globe’s more club-minded aficionados.

Update (8/8): The ‘Been Cursed’ mix will be released August 14 on Beatport through EMI. The Tom Hangs mix is out in October.

Though the globe is more interested in how he intends to top last years seminal club smasher, this promising remode for the New Year is a well-ironed warm up for what promises to be a landmark year for the young Swedish star.
