Taking a break from Where The Wild Things Are-related Karen O news for a moment … When Passion Pit got their hands on “Heads Will Roll” we ended up with so-so Sprockets-style techno. If you recall, the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ video for the original included a dancing werewolf, the single’s cover art featuring the same wolf (see above) sporting lipstick traces. In time or Halloween, we have a non-single take on the It’s Blitz tune. Basically, A-Trak’s taken a break from those recent ’70s Duck Sauce stylings to conjure a darker dance club workout.

There’s another take on the track, by Russell Simins and the Elegant Two, at YYY’s MySpace.
