If you’ve been missing the weekly thrill of hearing the catchy theme to “The White Lotus,” we have good news for you.
The theme song to Season 2 of the HBO dramedy, which is called “Renaissance” and has already inspired several memes, is getting an electronic dance music remix from the Dutch DJ Tiësto, dropping Friday.
“Fans absolutely love it,” Tiësto told CNN of the song. “Every time it plays in my set you can feel the energy shift on the dance floor and everyone just goes wild. The feeling is electric. I knew the first time I played it we were onto something special.”
The remix is the first to get an official blessing from HBO, CNN reports.
“I put my spin on it for my live sets and fans always go crazy for it,” Tiësto said.
The theme song has already inspired a number of remixes. Videos show remixes performed onstage by Sofi Tukker and Diplo. It was also reportedly played during a basketball game in Portland.
Tiësto has been nominated three times at the Grammy Awards and won once, for best remixed recording, non-classical for “All Of Me (Tiësto’s Birthday Treatment Remix)” in 2015.
Season 1 of “The White Lotus” clinched 20 nominations and 10 wins — including best limited series, best director for creator Mike White and best supporting actor awards for Murray Bartlett and Jennifer Coolidge — at the Emmy Awards.
For ‘The White Lotus’ cast in scenic Sicily, filming often felt like ‘we were really on vacation’
Season 2, which premiered in October of last year, was set in Sicily and filmed at the Four Seasons San Domenico Palace.
“Our shoot sprawled way over, but you’re in Italy and it was so special to be there,” White told USA TODAY. “I would sometimes tell friends, ‘I’m so tired, it’s so stressful,’ and they were like, ‘Shut up, you’re not getting any sympathy.’ “
