News of this collaboration came too early; it was such a tease to read about Chromeo working with La Roux singer Elly Jackson. Then we had to wait and wait. Luckily we had the recent "Hot Mess" video to tide us over.
The Chromeo single "Hot Mess ft. La Roux" will be officially released on 12" vinyl Jan 17th.
This new Gorillaz single "Doncamatic" will be released November 22nd as a 7" picture disc, CD single and digital bundle, picking up right where they left off on Plastic Beach. The video comes with this message from band member Murdoc:
"I actually found Daley washed up on Plastic Beach – covered in oil and singing to a seagull…or was it an albatross? Anyway, I recognise golden pipes when I hear em’ so I popped a bag over his head, hosed the boy down and chucked him in the studio with Noodle and her 8-track. I left them to it while I stepped outside for a Lucky Lung or three, and when I popped back in this is what they’d come up with! Am I a genius or WHAT?!?"
With six killer musicians, five dapper suits, irresistible songs, some serendipity and one vintage organ, Fitz And The Tantrums brought their rip-roaring stadium soul to Velvet Room at Clift, A Morgans Original, in San Francisco, on November 5th. Watch the crowd explode when they drop "Money Grabber," above, and be sure to check out our photos from the intimate evening.
