Jurassic 5 have unveiled their first new song for two years.
‘Customer Service’ is available as a pay-what-you-want download from the band’s website and samples its bassline from Edwin Birdsong’s 1971 song ‘The Spirit Of Do…Do’.
Since the band’s 2006 fourth album ‘Feedback’, their only new music has been 2014 single ‘The Way We Do It’, which sampled The White Stripes’ My Doorbell’.
Jurassic 5 split in 2007, citing musical differences, but reformed six years later. This included the return of turntablist Cut Chemist, who left in 2002 to go solo. They have continued to tour frequently since, but there is no sign of a full album.
Asked about a new album shortly after their reunion was announced, Cut Chemist told Clash: “Hopefully we’ll do new music. We’re just going to do the shows and see what the vibe is like. So far it’s been awesome and everyone is really excited about it. We’ll see where everyone’s heads are at, but I’d like to do it.”
Unusually, the band’s website states that ‘Customer Service’ is the band’s first song for a decade, omitting to mention ‘The Way We Do It’.
The band play UK festival shows this summer at NASS, Nozstock and Tramlines.
