Alan Palomo (of long-running avant pop mainstays Neon Indian) has just shared “Meutrière” from his upcoming album World of Hassle.

Alan Palomo's latest track, "Meutrière” features vocals from Flore Benguigui of French nu-disco band L’Impératrice.

"Though I tend to reference movies in my work, I've always wanted to write a song taking place on a film set that explores the friction often felt between actors and their directors. The trust. The reckless abandon,” comments Palomo. “A drama that precedes the onscreen drama. I was gleefully nonplussed when L'Imperatrice's very own Fleure Benguigui agreed to duet this kooky French-Italo banger.”

“From the jump, I knew I wanted to have the lyrics of Meutrière directly inform the video’s concept and attempt to adapt them as if they were a script. Born out of my love for Giallo flicks, this is a surreal smear of both the horrors in front and behind the camera on one particularly nightmarish Italian film set. Made with the closest of homies, this might be my favourite one yet!"

The song also features contributions from pop aficionado Lou Rebecca and m83’s Ian Young, with engineering credits that include S U R V I V E’s Michael Stein and Holy Ghost’s Nicholas Millhiser.

“Meutrière” is the third single from Palomo’s forthcoming album, following “Nudista Mundial ’89” (featuring Mac DeMarco) and “Stay-at-Home DJ".

World of Hassle is set for a 15 September release via Transgressive, and is available to pre-order.
