Gang Gang Dance co-founder Brian Degraw has gone solo under the alphabet soup-y moniker bEEdEEgEE, and plans to release the project's debut album on December 3 via 4AD. Titled SUM/ONE, the upcoming LP spans nine tracks and hosts guest appearances by Degraw's Gang Gang Dance-mate Lizzi Bougatsos, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor, and Douglas Armour. Another co-star featured is CSS' Lovefoxxx, who graces two tunes, one of which is now available for streaming. Imbued with dusky synths, "Flowers" casts the Brazilian electro-funk siren as enchanting temptress. First she's doling out compliments, singing, "I see your beauty," and by the song's end she's beckoning, "Surrender."
Hear "Flowers" below, and scroll further for the track list to SUM/ONE, followed by bEEdEEgEE's tour dates. For another glimpse at the record, check out previously shared croaker "Bricks." Pre-orders of SUM/ONE are now available through iTunes.
