mp3: Cut Copy - Where I'm Going
mp3: Cut Copy - Lights & Music (Moullinex remix)
Melbourne-based Cut Copy have given us the first taste of their upcoming third album, in the form of the free track "Where I'm Going". It's a tough task to make a follow-up to the hugely popular 2008 album In Ghost Colours - an insanely catchy synthpop album filled to the brim with danceable hit material. Judging by this first track, they're approaching the task by just doing something rather different: the follow-up seems to be 60s and psychedelica inspired, which is a major turn away from the New Order / 90s dance influences of the In Ghost Colours. That's judging by one new track, though - it will be interesting to see how this turns out!
Download the new track above, along with what I personally consider to the hands down best remix of any of the first album's tracks.
Cut Copy's new album is due out early 2011.
