Listen to Chromatics’ New Single “Time Rider”

It’s been a long road to Chromatics’ upcoming fifth album, Dear Tommy. The group’s most recent full-length release was 2012’s Kill For Love, which saw Johnny Jewel and his collaborators taking 80s synth pop to dreamy new heights. Since then, Jewel apparently recorded Dear Tommy in full before having a change of heart and destroying every single CD and vinyl copy of the album.

Today, Chromatics have released a new single, “Time Rider,” along with a music video. It’s a cinematic slow-burn of a track, and harks back to Jewel’s work on the soundtrack for Nicolas Winding Refn’s film Drive. The band have also announced a tour, further indicating that Dear Tommy might be coming later this year. Watch the “Time Rider” video and see Chromatics’ tour dates below.
