Unexpected. Yes. Unconventional. Very much so. But who cares in the end as funk lordz Chromeo finally announced the release date for their highly anticipated fourth studio album "White Women" in an unorthodox fashion. Using the internet superstore otherwise known as Craigslist as their medium, the duo created a post (seen above) containing the album artwork, lyrics to an unidentified song, and the release date of May 12th, 2014. Having teased fans for the last few months with tracks such as the recently released "Come Alive" featuring Toro Y Moi, we can now officially countdown to one of the biggest albums to come out in 2014. Stay tuned for more info as it is release and like always… Enjoy
Chromeo and Toro y Moi recently linked up for one of my favorite tracks I have ever heard from either artist individually and now we get the undeniably amazing track brought to visual form. As both artists’ track records include great music videos, it was no surprise it feels more like a short film as opposed to a music video, by Alex Southam. From Toro y Moi dressed as a janitor to Dave 1 electrocuting people, and girls dancing in leotards the video really has it all. Enjoy!
