Andy Butler’s ongoing disco-house project Hercules & Love Affair released its last album The Feast Of The Broken Heart two years ago, and since then, Butler has mostly been offering remixes to artists like Sylvan Esso and Róisín Murphy. But today, Butler has shared “Controller,” the first single from his as-yet-untitled next album. The song has nothing to do with Drake. Instead, it’s a needling, pounding, catchy-as-hell sex anthem with a vocal from Faris Badwan, frontman of the great British rock band the Horrors. Check it out below, via The FADER.
