Chromeo takes a subtle step in a change of direction from their usual sexed up funk and disco with this newly written ballad featuring the vocals of Vampire Weekend front man Ezra Koenig. Titled “Ezra’s Interlude,” the vocals switch back and forth between Koenig and Chromeo lead vocalist David Macklovitch aka Dave 1. Powered by a strong piano melody, Koenig raises the roof with his falsetto but then brought back to earth with Dave 1’s warmer voice. It’s a short ballad but quite a heartfelt interlude.
The track will be featured on Chromeo’s forthcoming album White Women. It’s scheduled to be released on May 12, 2014.
