Warpaint – “New Song”

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. “We all love to dance. We didn’t want to take away from the emotion or the core feeling of what our band is all about — which I don’t even think we could take out if we wanted, because it is who we are — but we wanted to bump the speed up and have a little bit more fun.” The lead single is the inventively-titled “New Song” (it’s a new song — get it?!), and it’s certainly more driving and immediate than almost anything they’ve put out before. Listen and check out a tracklist below.
