After dropping their surprise single “Action”, featuring Cat Power and Beastie Boys’ Mike D, last month, French house veterans Cassius have announced their first album in ten years, “Ibifornia”, set to drop on June 24th via Polydor/Interscope Records. The new record, the follow-up to 2006’s “15 Again”, features an all-star cast of long-term collaborators and friends, including Pharrell Williams, John Gourley of Portugal. The Man, Jaw, and Ryan Tedder. A portmanteau of Ibiza and California, “Ibifornia” is an imaginary utopia which, they say, is “inside every one of us.” The infectious track “Go Up”, featuring Cat Power and Pharrell Williams, is another taste of what’s to come. Press play.

It’s been a long, long time coming, but French electronic duo Cassius are finally back with their great new single “Action”, a “family affair”, which features vocals from Beastie Boys‘ Mike D and Cat Power. Recorded in New York, the track is a fusion of disco, house, Afrobeat and insistent pop hooks. It marks the first offering from the duo of Philippe Zdar and Boom Bass since 2006’s album “15 Again”. “Action” will appear on their upcoming new album, set to drop later this year. Give it a spin above, and get into the groove.
Update: Below, you can watch the weird video for “Action”, directed by Yuri Ancarani.
