Miike Snow Unleash Infectious New Song ‘Genghis Khan’
Miike Snow are gearing up for the March release of their third full-length III, and today (Dec. 3), they’ve unveiled “Genghis Khan,” the second track to emerge from the upcoming LP.
Andrew Wyatt announces, “I get a little Ghenghis Khan / I don’t want you to get it on with nobody else but me,” on the super-catchy and soulful synth-pop tune, which somehow makes jealousy and possessiveness sound like a downright alluring prospect. Take a listen in the video above.
“Ghengis Khan” follows III’s lead single “Heart Is Full,” the Swedish-American outfit's first new music in the three years that have passed since their sophomore effort Happy to You. That song has since received a futuristic music video (watch below) and a remix from Run the Jewels. Wyatt told the Fader he was nervous RtJ's rework would end up being "too retro" but was pleasantly surprised:
The moment Killer Mike launched into his verse, Emile [Haynie] and I couldn't stop smiling; he had found that flow, the rhythm to his lines that was undeniable, the flow which was so huge as to transcend any trendiness in music and just be monolithically awesome. El-P continued riding that same vein – and it’s like a sledgehammer.
III will arrive in full on March 4 via Atlantic/Downtown Records.
