, “Yes, I’ll admit, the remix is album is a completely selfish selection of the mixes that I’ve loved personally over the years (sic).” She also added, “Yes, NYC is a new song xxx.”
spoke about “NYC” saying the song “has some of the best-driven sensibility of her best songs (like “Sand In My Shoes”), but here, those beats sound more ‘90s-influenced than overly trancey. ‘I won’t be home until I’ve walked every street in New York,’ she sings over a charging electronic track. There’s a nice dissonance to the instrumentation; while it’s not as catchy as her best songs, it’s still a worthwhile entry into her catalogue.”
The singer joined Eminem on stage at the Reading Festival to perform their duet “Stan”, earlier this year.
