Dan Deacon 2012 press shot

Dan Deacon's third album, "America," will hit stores Aug. 28. (Handout / May 31, 2012)

Here's a treat for your 4th of July cookouts: Dan Deacon remixed the song of the summer, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" ... by taking the a capella and layering it over and over and over and over.

About an hour ago, Deacon explained it on Twitter: "I made 'Call Me Maybe Acapella 147 Times Exponentially Layered' for an all 'Call Me Maybe' covers comp." 

What begins as a pop ode to possibly calling someone you just met turns into something that sounds sinister and industrial, like a Nine Inch Nails remix from the "Pretty Hate Machine" days. So, obviously, I approve.
