Previewing the new album, the pair have shared ‘Don’t Sleep (Live in Washington D.C.)’ as its first single; you can listen to it below.

“We always toured as a duo, but on our last run, we put together a band of insane musicians,” Dave 1 said in a statement. “We told them, ‘Let’s make our stuff sound like late ‘80s, early ‘90s New Power Generation.’ It gave a new life to our entire catalogue. We had a blast – it was over the top, but then again so is pretty much everything we do.”

Last year, Chromeo released the coronavirus-themed EP ‘Quarantine Casanova’, featuring tracks like ‘6 Feet Away’ and ‘Clorox Wipe’.

“Honestly, it started as a joke,” commented Dave 1 in a statement at the time, explaining that the songs began from freestyling and quickly became popular with fans.

“As usual, it’s a high brow-low brow thing with us,” P-Thugg added. “These are obviously the funniest tracks we’ve ever written, but they connected in such a visceral way.”
