Spring fever is in the air, and while the winter hang-on weather outside may not fully be cooperating, the soundtrack inside is heating up. And dropping a new beat for the months ahead are Chromeo, who return with their first single since 2018, ahead of playing Coachella next month.

The track is called “Words With You,” and it’s a funk-fueled street-walkin’ strut of time-honored Chromeo confidence. Hitting streams n’ screens this past Friday (March 10), “Words With You” was written and produced by Chromeo’s David “Dave 1” Macklovitch and Patrick “P-Thugg” Gemayel, and mixed by New York producer Morgan Geist (Metro Area, Storm Queen). 

“For all intents and purposes, this is the first official Chromeo single since our last studio album,” says Dave 1. “So it’s a statement: A mix of new and familiar. The new: The horn section and live instruments, played throughout, from the drums to the bass to our array of synths. The familiar: The groove and the tone, two signature things that we’ve been honing for almost 20 years now. The idea was to come out with something that felt sophisticated and slick, with just enough swagger and wit to make you smile. It’s a balancing act we put a lot of thought into… with hopes that it never ever shows. So come over and lend an ear… we’d like to have a word with you.”

Can’t say no, regardless of the time of year.
