Du Blonde, the artist formerly known as Beth Jeans Houghton, has shared a brand new single called "Mind Is On My Mind", featuring Future Islands frontman and internationally renowned interpretative dancer Samuel T. Herring. The track is from Du Blonde's new LP, Welcome Back to Milk, du out May 19th on Mute Records.

Here's Houghton on the new track:

I wrote 'Mind Is On My Mind' on the back of a motorbike riding down the Pacific Coast Highway in LA and had to remember it all the way from Topanga to Malibu. I was interested at the time in writing songs with no repeating sections, but rather a succession of acts. A couple of months later, Sam and I took a trip out to the desert and came back to LA to make some music. I played him the track and he got in the booth and ad-libbed his lyrics over the instrumentation. He was done in like one or two takes. When I was back in London I'd become obsessed with these Middle Eastern and Greek guitar scales and I added the lead guitar in the outro as a contrast to Sam's vocals.
