Taken from this year's 'Heads Up' LP
Warpaint appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on Friday (December 16), performing ‘New Song’.
The song was released as the lead single from their September LP ‘Heads Up’, which was the band’s third studio album following 2010 debut ‘The Fool’ and 2014’s self-titled follow-up ‘Warpaint’.
NME described ‘Heads Up’ as “more adventurous and free-spirited than the ‘Warpaint’ of before, but retaining the laid-back DNA at their core. For once, Warpaint sound like they’re having fun – and it suits them.” You can watch Warpaint’s performance below.
Earlier this month, Warpaint shared a new remix of ‘New Song’ – the original, self-shot video to which featured the band dancing to the track around New York City – which has been reworked by Ghent DJ duo Soulwax, who have previously released remixes of songs by the likes of Tame Impala, MGMT and The Gossip.
‘New Song’ was also remixed by The Beastie Boys’ Mike D back in October. Warpaint wrote at the time that “we love Mike and [the] Beastie Boys so much forever. Honored to have his magic touch our tune.” Listen to Mike D’s remix here.
