Hear the Juan Maclean’s Playful ‘You Are My Destiny’ With LCD’s Nancy Whang

Juan Maclean 'You Are My Destiny' LCD Soundsystem Nancy Whang

Aside from remixing that well-hyphenated Caetano Veloso cover by Superhuman Happiness and Cults (“Ile Aiye”), the dancefloor destroyers in the Juan MacLean have been relatively quiet of late. The LCD Soundsystem affiliates last released a proper album in 2009 (The Future Will Come), though the surprising 2011 B-sides set Everybody Get Close was stronger than any proper TJM full-length to date. And now we’ve got a fresh single to consider which once again makes the case for the DFA Records crew’s mastery of hip, house-y notions. Former LCD member Nancy Whang adds her vocals to “You Are My Destiny,” adding a double-dose of playfulness and poignance as she sings about having lost and found her true love.

The single comes backed with a Nic Fanciulli remix and will be available digitally on April 9. The limited edition white label vinyl version is very much sold out. Hear a high-quality four-minute edit of the track via SoundCloud, followed by the entire nine-minute play beneath that.
