Chromeo Announce New Album, Share Video for New Song “Personal Effects”

Canadian electro-funk duo Chromeo have announced a new album, Adult Contemporary, and shared a new song from it, “Personal Effects,” via a music video. Adult Contemporary is due out February 16, 2024. Spencer Ford directed the “Personal Effects” video. Watch it below, followed by the album’s tracklist and cover artwork, as well as the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Chromeo is Dave 1 (Dave Macklovitch) and P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel).

Macklovitch had this to say about “Personal Effects” in a press release: “This is the last song we added on the album. I was on a flight and the pilot said, ‘please don’t forget your personal effects’ and I was like, ‘wait how come this isn’t a Chromeo song title?!’ We felt like we needed a little breezy funk…something warm and fuzzy to bop to. You notice that long instrumental bit at the end? That’s definitely a motif on the album: extended sections where we let the music ride out. Adult Contemporary is a meditation on modern, mature relationships, which means: if we gotta sing about curling irons, so be it.”

Morgan Geist (described in the press release as a “New York house legend”) mixed Adult Contemporary and Frances’s Alex Gopher (Phoenix, Air) mastered the album, which features La Roux on one song. The band’s last album was 2018’s Head Over Heels.

Adult Contemporary includes the previous singles “(I Don’t Need a) New Girl,” “Replacements,” and “Words With You.”
