Chromeo Recruits Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig

(Radio.com) As future-retro dance-rockers Chromeo prepare for the May 12 release of the duo's fourth full-length, White Women, the group has revealed album track "Ezra's Interlude", featuring vocals from Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig.

"Ezra came in and we made him sound like a Bee Gee," Chromeo's P-Thugg told Radio.com about the gentle slow jam, which clocks in at just under two minutes, during an exclusive interview at Coachella, where the band is set to hit the main stage again this weekend.

"It's kind of like when Paul McCartney came on the Michael Jackson song," added Chromeo frontman Dave 1, referencing the 1982 single, "The Girl is Mine," from Jackson's Thriller album. "It was Paul McCartney on a Michael Jackson song. He didn't overshadow him," adding that "Ezra has a falsetto on the song that is completely different than Vampire Weekend."

"Ezra's Interlude" follows previously released White Women tracks "Over Your Shoulder" and "Sexy Socialite." Listen to the new track here.
