New Music: AM & Shawn Lee

Although you may not be familiar with AM & Shawn Lee, this track off of the duo’s upcoming sophomore album, La Musique Numerique, should be. Yes, amidst the twinkling synths and rolling vocals, you’ll uncover Joe Jackson’s 1982 hit “Steppin’ Out.”

The LA/London band is dubbing this a “cosmic cover,” and we hear what they mean–if we were orbiting space, it would be nice to have this soundtrack on loop. Throw in a little bit of disco and soul and you’ve got the ultimate Friday afternoon track. Want more? After the album release on May 7, they’ll be touring all summer long (get all the dates here). Yeah, it should be out of this world. –REBECCA WILLA DAVIS
