AM & Shawn Lee have unleashed the closing track from their upcoming album, La Musique Numerique: "Steppin' Out." Yes, it is a cover of Joe Jackson's infectious 1982 hit. They will tour this summer, so perhaps they will play it live!
The album is out May 7 via Park the Van Records, but check out the cover below! It's certainly more beat-driven than the original, but it's fun, cute and dance-worthy.
And while we've got your here, a little background info on La Musique Numérique, which is French for "digital music." It's a sun-filled, space-funk masterwork that blends early digital technology with decade-blurring songwriting, transporting listeners deeper into the sonic crates from which the music was born.
La Musique Numérique sees the duo expanding their influences while simultaneously refining their sound and tightening production. Taking fans in and out of faded memories of disco, funk, soul and reggae but never colonizing one style.
