We already love Capital Cities, and—regardless of your thoughts on their golden hit single "Safe and Sound"—this new cut takes it to the next level. Ahead of their forthcoming album, A Tidal Wave of Mystery, the band has unveiled one of the set's much-hyped tracks, "Farrah Fawcett Hair," featuring André 3000.
As the catchy chorus proclaims, "It's good s---!" And it definitely is. The song also includes original narration by the voice of NPR, Frank Tavares. If you've been waiting to see just what this duo—comprised of Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian—is really capable of, "Hair" should give you a much clearer picture.
A Tidal Wave of Mystery arrives June 4 via Capitol Records. To read a portion from our recent interview with the band, click here.
Check out the funky new collaboration below. P.S. Although we'd love to hear this new gem on the radio, it's hard to imagine what it'd sound like (see Kendrick Lamar's "Trick Don't Kill My Vibe").
