Groove Armada aka Tom Findlay and Andy Cato have been hinting at new material over the past few weeks and now the duo have shared the first new single from their album and accompanying video. ‘Get Out On The Dancefloor’ is a new sound for the band in 2020. The lead single of the new album, it features Empire of the Sun and Pnau frontman Nick Littlemore, whose vocals on the track merge with with the duo’s grooves.
The duo had accumulated hundreds of extracts of Littlemore’s vocals and edited them together into something new. Cato recalls, “As I went through the recordings of Nick, I realised there were lots of cool phrases and great deliveries we could use. It took a very long time to find the right order for them, but once we had that line ‘Get out on the dancefloor, it felt vibey. Slotting the music underneath was the easy bit!”
The video features cameo performances filmed by Groove Armada super fans in isolation from lockdown across the globe. They include US actress Rose McGowan, Brit singer Sophie Ellis Bextor and UK drag star Davina De Campo, plus an army of TikTok user.
Out now on BMG, the track previews their first studio LP since 2010’s ‘Black Light’.
