"Well basically we'd been touring around France, a lot, and we had a lot of great radio support leading up to that 'Stones' show. Somebody dropped out literally two weeks before the performance and we were just suggested in a meeting and then we got the call," Spiller said about opening from the Rolling Stones before The Struts had even released their first album.
The band went on to give Elvis Duran listeners the exclusive scoop about their collaboration with Kesha on the remix of their single "Body Talks."
"We can finally say it! We've been holding this in and it's great to get this one out!" Luke Spiller told Elvis Duran. [Kesha] is a real rock and roller at heart really. When you talk to her about her music and stuff, she loves the Stones. She loves a lot of great British bands. So I think we naturally connected and she heard the song and that was it really. "
Spiller went on to say that Kesha told him she only had to listen to the first 20 seconds of "Body Talks" before saying 'yes.' When they got together to record the track, Kesha hadn't even heard the chorus yet!
The Struts and Kesha "Body Talks" mix hasn't been released, but that didn't stop Elvis Duran giving the song its first radio spin! You can't find it anywhere!
