Chromeo Nab Toro y Moi for New Single ‘Come Alive’
Those Canadians are so pragmatic. Figuring Daft Punk‘s ‘Get Lucky’ will eventually wear out its welcome — and maybe it already has — the Montreal electro-funk aces have paired with Toro y Moi’s Chaz Bundick to give the world the new single ‘Come Alive,’ a first-rate body-mover about on par with this summer’s undisputed anthem.
‘Come Alive’ appears on Chromeo’s forthcoming fourth album, ‘White Women,’ and talking up the new tune, group members Dave 1 and P-Thugg have no choice but to invoke the name of the singer behind the immortal 1986 hit ‘We Don’t Have to Take Our Clothes Off.’
“Toro is a new school funk disciple, like us,” says the band, explaining the Bundwick collabo. “Ever since we heard his music we wanted to unleash his inner Jermaine Stewart.”
Chromeo will support ‘White Women’ — due out this spring on Altantic — with the just-announced Come Alive Tour, which kicks off April 6 in Houston. Click here for a full list of dates.
