More importantly, in celebration of May Day, an ancient public holiday known for raucous celebrations, Gogol Bordello have offered up a stream of their rebellious new song "Malandrino" to get the party started.

The album's title is derived from a Spanish slang phrase for "pure life," which is a theme that resonates throughout the new material. The new songs are infused with ideas rooted in Eastern philosophy but also search for a means of joining fragmented parts and persons, and of creating a worldwide consciousness.
"For me music is a way to explore human potential," GB's Eugene Hutz says. "And that's my main interest in life – human potential. Everyone knows there's something inside of us that we're not using. How do we get it? How do we reach it? Every single person knows that there's something and nobody knows what it is. So at one point I said to myself, 'I'm gonna get down and get it.'"
Go get it, Eugene! The unlocking of human potential is a conundrum that humans, academics, scholars and theologians have explored since the dawn of time! Someone has to find it. We have faith in music as a whole and in Gogol Bordello as the means with which to help dig further and locate the core of human potential!
