Mew's new U.S. tour starts this week. In honor of that they've shared a new remix of "Witness" by Olugbenga Adelekan, the bassist for Metronomy. He adds a lot more meat and heft to the song and you can check out his remix below, followed by the band's tour dates. The song is taken from the band's latest album, + -, released earlier this year.

Brooklyn Vegan premiered the remix and spoke to Adelekan about it, who admitted he was a big Mew fan and had this to say about the remix: "I caught the video for The 'Zookeeper's Boy' on MTV2 one day after school. Then I heard 'Apocalypso.' I have been hooked on the music of Mew ever since then. There is always a giddy smile on my face as I follow the strange perambulations of this music that should not work and yet works so well. The indelible melodies play a big part. I could have remixed any song from + -, because I love this album just as much as the others. I had a lot of fun with 'Witness' and I'm honored that people will get a chance to hear it."

Check out the remix below. Also read our recent print magazine interview with Mew's Jonas Bjerre. Mew performed at Under the Radar's SXSW party this year. They also kept a SXSW diary for us, recently made a mixtape for us, and wrote a guest blog on a British design TV show.
