Chromeo Drops New Single, Plays The Tonight Show, & Announces Album Release Date
What a helluva 2 days for the funk duo Chromeo! Chromeo debuted a new track, ‘Bad Decision' – The song is the latest release from their highly anticipated forthcoming album Head Over Heels, which now has an ficial release date – out June 15 on Big Beat/Atlantic Records and available for pre-order here.
“Bad Decision” follows the single “Must’ve Been” featuring DRAM — released a month ago and already streamed close to 5 million times — as well as “Juice”, and “Bedroom Calling” featuring The-Dream, all which are thriving on all streaming services and radio waves across the globe.
Furthermore, last night the band performed the Head Over Heels lead single “Must’ve Been” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” alongside DRAM, legendary funk guitarist Jesse Johnson and The Roots. Safe to say the late night airwaves were in for a funk extravaganza.
Head Over Heels, recorded over the past two years at Chromeo’s Los Angeles studio, is the group’s most collaborative effort to date. Bridging generations and sub-genres like only the Funklordz could, it features guest vocals from The-Dream, Stefflon Don, French Montana and Amber Mark, among others, plus musical contributions from neo-soul legend Raphael Saadiq, 2000s R&B mastermind Rodney Jerkins, D’Angelo collaborator Pino Palladino, Nuyorican jazz ensemble Onyx Collective and more. Far reaching and expansive, Head Over Heels is Dave 1 and P-Thugg’s heartfelt love letter to the funk, soul and R&B that has influenced them since their teenage years.
