Jonathan Rado and Sam France have reunited to write, record, and produce another Foxygen album! Hang is due out January 20th and according to their Facebook info, the entirety of the record was made completely “computerless.” There is a 40-plus piece symphony orchestra on every track and it features Steve Drozd from the Flaming Lips as well as the D’Addario brothers from The Lemon Twigs.

We have been insanely excited about this record since listening to the most recent single: “Follow the Leader.” Reminding us of “How Can You Really,” a single off their last studio album, …And Star Power, this tune is full of upbeat brass and a beautifully enchanting escalation of strings. The symphonic component layered over Rado’s keys and consistent horn section sends this track back to the disco-era. Picture a magnificent ballroom scene on a ship in the crisp night air where the stunning heroine spins and spins around in her gown; you can dance to this. Get up to France’s raspy, barreling vocals and treat yourself to the music video below where the title takes on another meaning in the playground.
