Canadian electrofunk duo Chromeo have revealed that their forthcoming new album will feature contributions from Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig and LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney.
The duo – made up of DJs P-Thugg and Dave 1 – announced the news to fans via an AMA on Reddit. Also set to appear on the pair’s fourth studio album ‘White Women’ are Toro Y Moi and Solange. ‘White Women’ follows their 2010 LP ‘Business Casual’, 2007’s ‘Fancy Footwork’ and their 2004 studio debut ‘She’s In Control’.
The band also explained their album title, which was taken from the first book of work by fashion photographer Helmut Newton: “We chose the title because it’s the name of the first Helmut Newton book,” they wrote. “He’s a huge influence on us…you know, the legs, that 80s sexy look. And we thought the title was ballsy, funny, was going to get people thinking. Our music always blurred boundaries between past and present (is it retro? is it modern? is it both?) and now we want to blur boundaries between gender and race as well.”
Earlier this week (September 17), Chromeo revealed ‘Over Your Shoulder’ – their first new track in three years – listen to it below. A single titled ‘Sexy Socialite’ is scheduled to be released next month (October).
