New In: The Juan Maclean are go

DFA’s The Juan Maclean make their long awaited return with new album The Future Will Come on 16th April. With ‘Happy House’ vocalist and LCD Soundsystem touring member Nancy Whang now a full time collaborator, Juan also called on label mates Holy Ghost! and !!! drummer Jerry Fuchs to record the new record.

Preceding the album is new single ‘One Day’, released on 6th April (DFA store). Beginning with stabbing synth rhythms and some neat vocal tricks, the track builds on a classic keyboard riff then ends with a flurry of percussive, dancefloor magic. Expect remixes from Surkin and Emperor Machine amongst others, while UK live dates have just been released (see below).

Talking of remixes, we’re dying to hear Juan’s mix of Franz Ferdinand’s ‘No You Girls’ – can anyone help us out?

UK Dates:

19 April – LONDON – Noise of Art at Ether @ QEH
28 April – LONDON – White Heat @ Madame JoJos
29 April – MANCHESTER – The Deaf Institute
30 April – LIVERPOOL - Korova
