Chromeo Set to Release "White Women" This May

Details Revealed via Valentine's Day Craigslist Personal Ad; http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/hnp/mis/4333310537.html

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/14/14 -- Leave it to two of the world's greatest seduction artists, Dave 1 and P-Thugg of Chromeo, to pull off the Valentine stunt of officially announcing the release of their fourth studio album today by way of Craigslist personal ad! White Women, slated for release on May 12th via Big Beat / Atlantic, sees the self-proclaimed "Larry David of Funk" outfit writing and recording their most fully realized body of work to date, honing in on a sound that highlights their indie hero legacy while paying homage to some of their greatest artistic inspirations by way of well-crafted, modern pop songs and iconic imagery. Ranging from sultry R&B hooks to classic rock riffs with their always hilarious and charmingly vulnerable lyrics, White Women is their reinterpretation of the late great 70s and 80s disco funk era that gave way to the culture from which they were born.

A band with a history like Chromeo is no stranger to breaking through barriers and White Women, the joint effort of perhaps the world's most successful Arab / Jewish partnership, is the obvious, ambitious next step for a duo whom naysayers once dismissed as a mere tongue-in-cheek project. Now, almost ten years later, it's as if the caricatures of Dave 1 and P-Thugg have come to life as Chromeo's exponential growth and fan emulation continue thanks to their signature high brow / low brow sensibility, which is both immediately recognizable and eminently relatable. Everything from the Helmut Newton-inspired album title to the meticulously designed and iconic Surface To Air artwork, to the high concept music videos and outrageous live appearances.... that all contain that certain special Chromeo je ne sais quoi... have aided in what has become one of the most eagerly anticipated releases of 2014.

Dave and Pee kicked off the album campaign in late 2013 with collaborations with Snarkitecture, MILK Studios, Tumblr and Surface To Air, made TV history with their live version of "Sexy Socialite" with Death From Above 1979 as their backing band on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon and sold out shows in the US and Europe within minutes of announcing them. 2014 sees the boys coming even stronger, with the just released video for "Come Alive" featuring Toro y Moi, Coachella Festival performances, a Red Rocks headlining show, the 26 date Come Alive Tour across the US, UK and Europe (many of the shows are already sold-out, see list below) and many more exciting details to be revealed as album release date gets closer. Until then, get the first look today as Chromeo reveal the next chapter in their wedding-themed adventure with their cover art for White Women -- see below.

Every day is Valentine's Day with Chromeo but White Women will officially be in stores and available digitally worldwide on May 12th!
