Among the many delightful bits of information that Giorgio Moroder passed along to The Times' August Brown in October was that the 73-year-old disco pioneer had remixed a tune by L.A.'s Haim.

In terms of hipster-aligned pop in 2013, this was more or less like learning that Nabokov had punched up a bit of Hemingway.

A little over a month later, the result of that too-cool union is here, and if it isn't quite the second coming of "I Feel Love," Moroder's remix convincingly transforms the Haim sisters' bubbly pop-rock tune into a slamming club jam.

There is an unrelenting beat. There are icy event-horizon synths. And there is a choir of robot voices reminding you that Moroder also appeared on this year's Daft Punk album. What a guy.

Listen to the "Forever" remix below.
