Legendary funk duo, Chromeo, unveils Must’ve Been featuring multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated singer, DRAM, and guitarist, Jesse Johnson (Prince, The Time), with a new video today. Watch the Dugan O’Neal-directed clip, which traces the two-piece’s decades-spanning friendship, here. The track is the latest single from their highly anticipated forthcoming album, Head Over Heels, set for release June 15 on Last Gang Records in Canada.

The album, recorded over the past two years at Chromeo’s Los Angeles studio, is the group’s most collaborative to date. Bridging generations and sub-genres like only the Funklordz could, it features guest vocals from The-Dream, Stefflon Don, French Montana and Amber Mark, among others, plus musical contributions from neo-soul legend Raphael Saadiq, 2000s R&B mastermind Rodney Jerkins, D’Angelo collaborator Pino Palladino, NY’s Onyx Collective, members of Mtume and Toto and more. Far reaching and expansive, Head Over Heels is Dave 1 and P-Thugg’s heartfelt love letter to the funk, soul and R&B that influenced them since their teenage years.

Must’ve Been sees Chromeo effortlessly moving toward more of a live sound, packed with signature guitars, synth swells, gospel flourishes and a surprising performance from DRAM. It follows Juice, which The Guardian calls “a jaunty, electro-funk mega-banger,” and Bedroom Calling featuring The-Dream, which Billboard lauds “quite honestly one of the best Chromeo songs we’ve heard in years.”
