Today, platinum-selling alt-rocker grandson releases an alternative version of “Rain” remixed by The Suicide Squad star Idris Elba (who plays Bloodsport in the film). The original version of “Rain” is the official single of The Suicide Squad and the new offering provides a clubby and uptempo rework of the “atmospheric slow burn” (Ones To Watch). A perfect song to close out the summer, the track even features a guest verse from Idris.

“We shot a sequence in the rain and I remember it feeling like a music video at the time,”Idris Elba shares about filming the movie. “In my head, I thought how sick it would be to write a song about the rain sequence. When I heard grandson and Jessie’s song I was so happy to get a chance to remix it and contribute it to the universe.”
“What can you say when a legend agrees to work with you?” says grandson. “It was a natural opportunity that came up through The Suicide Squad Soundtrack, and I’m beyond grateful Idris, a multifaceted artist I’ve been a fan of since I was a kid, agreed to add his touch of London house music to our song ‘Rain.’"
grandson has had a massive year and this new single follows “Oh No!!!” (also from The Suicide Squad), which featured rappers Vic Mensa and Masked Wolf and was included in the end title sequence of James Gunn’s action-adventure film. Previously, grandson teamed up with Jessie Reyez for “Rain,” the two Toronto-born artists' first collaboration and its earth-shattering official music video. Electric neon lighting highlights the fierce and sultry Reyez and grandson as they fight their way out of getting captured like true Super-Villains.
