Everybody who saw season two of “The White Lotus” is aware that you should never use the “skip intro” button. Once the season aired, the show’s indescribably catchy theme tune, which develops from a delicate string section to a full-on club banger, became a viral success and rapidly sparked a number of remixes.
The hitmaker Tisto has now provided the song with an official remix. The song, named “Renaissance,” debuted on streaming services on February 17. It’s not the first remix of the song, though; Candy Moore’s, which incorporates Tanya McQuoid’s famous “please, these gays, they’re trying to murder me” line, has also gained widespread popularity, according to CNN; rather, it’s the first that HBO has accepted.
Tiësto told CNN that he was inspired to make an official remix of the song after playing it at some of his shows to great success. “Fans absolutely love it,” he told the outlet. “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 White Lotus” season two, which takes place in Sicily, came to a dramatic conclusion in December 2022, and soon netted Jennifer Coolidge a Golden Globe for best supporting actress for her performance as Tanya. Shortly after, Coolidge told POPSUGAR that while she won’t be reuniting with the season two cast for another season, she hopes that maybe they’ll all have a Sicilian reunion sometime — and we’re willing to bet that Tiësto would be down to DJ.
