A few weeks ago, when we posted the first new track (“2 Hearts”) from German indie dance rockers Digitalism and their forthcoming I Love You Dude, their first record in four years and follow up to 07′s dance heavy Idealism, we ended the post hinting that the record would contain a collaboration with The Strokes’ frontman, Julian Casablancas. Good news came this morning when we discovered the song has been released for our audible pleasure.
“Forrest Gump” sounds exactly what you would expect from such a collaboration: Digitalism’s hard hitting, synthesizer driven beats, bass heavy electro riffs and Casablanca’s distinct method of delivering. Check out the club banger below. I Love You Dude is out June 20th via Cooperative.
