Sophie Ellis-Bextor has shared a PNAU remix of one of her most loved and successful songs ‘Murder on the Dancefloor’, which recently charted back in the UK Singles Chart at #2, remaining at the same spot in last week’s charts.

The brand-new remix of the song sees multi-platinum-selling electronic act PNAU team up with Sophie for a funky electro-house version of the track. As well as their own hits, such as ‘Go Bang’ and ‘Chameleon’, PNAU have also worked with some of the biggest acts in the world, including penning a remix for Elton John and Dua Lipa for ‘Cold Heart: the PNAU remix’ and working with Elton John on his remix album ‘Good Morning To The Night’.
