AlunaGeorge has just released its newest single, "I'm in Control," featuring Jamaican dancehall artist Popcaan. The song is the first single off the duo's upcoming sophomore album, which is due out on Interscope Records later this year. The album will be the first release for the pair—that's Aluna Francis and George Reid—on the label, and is a follow up to their debut LP, Body Music, which came out in 2013 on Island Records.
According to an interview done earlier this year with Billboard, "The LP includes production from EDM stars Flume and Zhu." Though the album has yet to receive a title, the band is set to perform at Coachella in April and at Atlanta's Shaky Boots Music Festival in May.
With an almost tropical sound to the track, Popcaan plays the perfect foil. His distinct vocals dance seamlessly on top of the track, and match up perfectly with Francis' voice. Popcaan is most famous for his collaboration on Jamie xx's "I Know There's Gonna Be (Good Times)" which also featured Young Thug. The song was released as the third single from Jamie xx's solo debut, In Colour, via Young Turks.
