Following suit with the unveiling of the single, a “Ghost” remix EP was announced via an exclusive stream from Thump. The EP features “a diverse collection of artists like Audion (an alias of Matthew Dear), Bwana, Luvian, and even Lane 8 himself” with styles “ranging from techno to flowing progressive house, in four very captivating interpretations of the original track.” On May 14, Billboard premiered the Audion remix which “trades the original’s beatless melodies and lonely lead synth line for a tribal groove that provides an edgy backdrop to Patrick Baker’s longing lyrics.” The second single from the album, “Hot As You Want”, was premiered by Spin on June 1. They described it as a “lovely 4/4 anthem” and “sublimely aching track.”
