Warpaint have announced a follow-up to their very good 2014 sophomore self-titled album. It’s called Heads Up, and apparently sees the LA rockers going in a more dance-oriented direction. “We’ve always had this really jammy, high-energy live show compared to some of our records,” the band’s Emily Kokal said in a statement.

The lead single is the inventively-titled “New Song” it’s certainly more driving and immediate than almost anything they’ve put out before.

This track, taken from Warpaint’s 2016 album, Heads Up, sounds nothing like Santana, though. Soulwax got their disco-fevered paws on the original and bongo-ed the shit out of it. The result is like a tropical island getaway for the ears. Into it.
