A new remix of L.A. band, Warpaint’s track “New Song” from Soulwax premiered earlier today, taken from their latest release Heads Up. Warpaint will perform “New Song” on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” December 16. The band previously shared takes on “New Song” from Beastie Boys’ Mike D and Jono Jagwar Ma.
Heads Up was recorded after the band spent 2015 apart working on solo projects and their own endeavors. Reuniting in January of this year, the band invited producer Jacob Bercovici—with whom they had worked on their debut EP Exquisite Corpse—into their House on the Hill studio in Downtown Los Angeles to begin work on the new LP. For the first time ever, the band recorded in pairs and alone rather than as a full band, allowing for a new creative freedom. Warpaint is Emily Kokal (guitar, vocals), Jenny Lee Lindberg (bass, vocals), Stella Mozgawa (drums, vocals) and Theresa Wayman (guitar, vocals). Heads Up follows their critically beloved debut EP Exquisite Corpse, 2010’s The Fool and 2014’s Warpaint.
Warpaint has just finished the second leg of their North American tour, and should be announcing new 2017 dates, shortly.
