First teased in the beginning of January, followed up by the first audio teaser only a week later, fans have been tying for a taste of this new ZHU & Tame Impala record, “My Life.” Surely the styles of one of dance music’s most creative producers and one of rock’s most psychedelic new upstarts had to mesh well – now that we have the chance to listen to the full product, we can say those predictions were right on point.
“My Life” won’t necessarily be tearing up dance floors anytime soon, but then again, if that was the only purpose of dance music, we’d have a pretty boring selection of music to listen to. Vocals from Tame Impala lead singer Kevin Parker work effortlessly with ZHU’s downtempo beats and instrumental improvisation, playing with a simple jazz style utilizing plenty of horns and strings.
The song is easily anthemic, never really seeming as if any real effort is put forth, as if it just naturally happened this way… such is the simplicity and genius of the production behind the record. ZHU & Tame Impala’s “My Life” is out now – listen to it below.
In addition to the new song, ZHU’s website has been updated to tease his Fall tour. Enter your email to stay up to date with new announcements!
