    Kanye West has teamed up with none other than British synthpop duo La Roux for a remix of their hit "In For the Kill." It's streaming now exclusively at Entertainment Weekly, and a video is in the works — no official announcement about its release yet, but a picture of Kanye and La Roux frontwoman Elly Jackson on set has surfaced.

    Not a whole lot got changed beat-wise — the synths and drums are a little bigger, but it's still substantially the same song, just with a Kanye verse added in. Said verse is, um, good in a few spots, and not so good in between them. Seriously though, what's up with those random growls? Imma let you finish, but that was one of the worst ideas of ALL TIME! OF ALL TIME! (Exaggeration, but I couldn't resist.) Luckily for all involved, Kanye's name alone adds some serious weight to the thing, even if his vocals don't.

    La Roux will be embarking on a brief US tour in November. Their self-titled debut album, which includes the original version of "In for the Kill," is out now on Polydor. There is also a remix EP of "In for the Kill" out, which contains four (vastly superior) other remixes by Skream (most famously), Skrillex (who we profiled here last week), Tim Bran, and Danger's Ocean.

    Kanye West, for his part, has been all over the music press as he prepares to drop his next album, which has been titled My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. An official release date hasn't been announced yet, although rumor and Kanye's twitter have it at November 22nd. -peter menniti
