Pop alchemists AlunaGeorge today reveal a new single, entitled I’m in Control, featuring Jamaican rapper Popcaan, available now for digital download. The track is the first single from the London duo’s upcoming new album, I Remember, which will be released this spring by Interscope/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
The band — singer and lyricist Aluna Francis and producer George Reid — have barely stopped since they released their 2012 single You Know You Like It followed by their critically lauded debut album, Body Music, in 2013. Last year, DJ Snake’s remix of You Know You Like It became one of the most streamed songs of all time, also racking over 161 million Spotify plays and over 72 million YouTube views. Of the band, Pitchfork has said: “Together the pair have perfected a futuristic sound,” while The Guardian remarked: “Every now and again a band comes along packing both a surface breeze and a depth charge.”
I’m In Control, a song about interpersonal empowerment and ownership, showcases their signature and innovative take on pop-leaning down tempo dance and experimental R&B, addING a deliciously addictive dancehall edge.
