Chromeo recently revealed on Reddit that the new album includes several guests including Ezra Koenig from Vampire Weekend, Toro Y Moi, Solange, and Pat Mahoney from LCD Soundsystem. The band also explained during their AMA why they named the new record White Women:
"We chose the title because it's the name of the first Helmut Newton book. He's a huge influence on us...you know, the legs, that 80s sexy look. And we thought the title was ballsy, funny, was going to get people thinking. Our music always blurred boundaries between past and present (is it retro? is it modern? is it both?) and now we want to blur boundaries between gender and race as well.
"We actually don't have a thing for White Women. It's a reference to the first Helmut Newton book. He's a huge influence on us -- legs and all. And we thought the title was funny and sexy in a Roxy Music kid of way."
Chromeo hasn't announced the release date for the new album yet, though it will likely be out before the end of the year. For more on Chromeo, visit the official site here.
