Electro-funk duo Chromeo debuts their newest song, “Bedroom Calling,” featuring singer/songwriter and producer The-Dream. Chromeo, composed of high school best friends Dave 1 (David Macklovitch) and P-Thugg (Patrick Gemayel) gained attention for their groovy, ebullient productions, and “Bedroom Calling” delivers no less.
The track blends in R&B influences, likely from The-Dream, formally named Terius Nash. Nash cowrote numerous pop hits such as “Umbrella” for Rihanna, “Me Against the Music” for Brittany Spears, and “Baby” for Justin Beiber, just to name a few. In 2016, he released his film Genesis with a 10-song soundtrack exploring his personal dreams and internal conflict.
Chromeo themselves are personal fans of The-Dream. “We’ve been obsessed with The-Dream since ‘Fast Car’ from his first album. To us, he’s a modern day funk auteur, like Prince or El Debarge. This song pays homage to our favorite work of his,” shares Dave 1.
“Bedroom Calling” is one of two released tracks on Chromeo’s upcoming album, Head Over Heels, with pending release for Spring 2018. Their first released track with video, “Juice,” can be heard here.
Chromeo have also announced tour dates throughout North America, hitting up Coachella, Electric Forest, Primavera Sound, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and more from April until June.
