The 'Born This Way' star selected the Northern Irish band to remix one of her songs.

Lady Gaga is eager to help smaller artists and indie bands, according to Two Door Cinema Club.

The Northern Irish group were hand chosen to remix the singer's song 'Electric Chapel' for her recent 'Born This Way' remix album.

The album, which was released at the end of last year, also features remixes by the likes of Metronomy and Wild Beasts.

Speaking to the NME, singer Alex Trimble said he was surprised that Lady Gaga had chosen to work with "lesser known acts".

"It was a really nice thing to see that she was getting a lot of indie artists to remix her stuff," he said.

"I thought if she was doing a remix album she'd have people like David Guetta or Tiesto, so it's nice that she's taking lesser known acts and independent artists, and is giving them exposure."

Alex also admitted he found it "odd" that Lady Gaga was a fan of the group because she is "such a huge phenomenon".

Meanwhile, Lady Gaga is currently putting the finishing touches to plans for her 'Born This Way' world tour, which is expected to take place later this year.
