As an added bonus, Derek and the Darling are offering a previously unreleased remix of their single “Hustler with a Rescue Plan” by Boston, MA’s The Filth (Passion Pit, Ludicris, Snoop Dogg) for free download. “Hustler with a Rescue Plan,” is an anthemic pop/rock song with a sly groove and a big arena-sound that’s pumped full of adrenalized guitars and a big, beefy beat. “For me, this song is three shots of espresso,” he explains. “It jolts me into action. It’s the life I signed up for – triumphs and struggle – and I love it!”
