M.I.S.S. In The Mix: Chromeo Releases A Third Studio Album

Chromeo Goes "Business Casual" For Their Third Studio Album

Chromeo Goes "Business Casual" For Their Third Studio Album

Chromeo is comprised of two childhood friends who jokingly describe themselves as “the only successful Arab/Jewish partnership since the dawn of human culture.” Since the release of their 2004 debut album She’s in Control, the odd couple P-Thugg and Dave 1 have been busy making hits and leading the way in electronic music.  However, the electrofunk duo is back and once again ready to command dance floors and the attention of die-hard funk fanatics with the release of their third studio album Business Casual.

The new album set to be released this summer is a follow-up to their 2007 hook-heavy, smoothed-out album Fancy Footwork. Business Casual is said to be a continuation of the heavily synthesized, electronic, dance club anthems that Chromeo became so famous for. Channeling Hall & Oates, Zapp, and Rick James, the duo keep the tradition of 70’s and 80’s inspired funk jams as well as a new sophisticated, mature sound on the new album. It is mixed by a longtime Chromeo collaborator Phillipe Zdar and features artwork by the Paris design collective Surface 2 Air.  The pair are also set to go on a 23-date US tour, including festival appearances at Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo Festival. A full list of tour dates will be announced next month. In the meantime, be sure to check Chromeo’s blog for frequent updates and exclusive material.  Check out the track list below !

Hot Mess
I’m Not Contagious
You Make it Rough
Don’t Turn the Lights On
Grow Up
