Popstrangers – “Return Of The Mack” (Mark Morrison Cover) (Stereogum Premiere)

London-based, New Zealand-born indie-poppers Popstrangers released the excellent Fortuna last spring, and they’ll return to the US for the first time in two years this month for a bunch of gigs at California’s Culture Collide Festival and NYC’s CMJ Music Marathon. To mark the occasion, today they’re unveiling their cover of Mark Morrison’s ’90s R&B smash “Return Of The Mack.” That’s a great song, and they’ve successfully turned it into a Popstrangers tune. Listen below, where you’ll also find the festival dates.
