Chromeo has announced more details on the forthcoming album White Women.
Yesterday, during an AMA on Reddit, Chromeo revealed a long list of artists they have collaborated with for the new album. The list includes some pretty big names too like Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig, Solange, Toro Y Moi and Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem.
When asked why the album was titled White Women, the Montreal duo said it was inspired by Helmut Newton’s first book “We chose the title because it’s the name of the first Helmut Newton book. He’s a huge influence on us…you know, the legs, that 80s sexy look,” they said “Our music always blurred boundaries between past and present (is it retro? is it modern? is it both?) and now we want to blur boundaries between gender and race as well.”
White Women is the follow-up to Chromeo’s 2010 album Business Casual, and is set to be released later this year.
