What do we know thus far about Chromeo’s forthcoming album White Women? Well, first off, the Montreal duo’s next LP will be out May 12 via Big Beat Records. Secondly, the tracks “Come Alive,” “Jealous (I Ain’t With It),” “Sexy Socialite,” and “Over Your Shoulder” are your pre-selected summer jams. And third, the duo enlisted a star cast of appearances for the new set, including Solange, LCD Soundsystem’s Pat Mahoney, Fool’s Gold two-piece Oliver, and Toro Y Moi. Now, Vampire Weekend’s Ezra Koenig has joined the Chromeo club of releases with the pleasantly upbeat “Ezra’s Interlude.” Koenig lays on the ivory and sings like Elton John in his “Rocket Man” days, telling us “I don’t want to feel it for the second time,” before Chromeo lighten up the mood a bit with their signature electro.
