Lambchop are back with "Fuku", the second track to be lifted from their upcoming album Showtunes.
"Fuku" arrives after last month's opening single "A Chef’s Kiss", and is accompanied by a mini-film directed by Doug Anderson.
Kurt Wagner says of the song and mini-film, "There is a theatricality to the song "Fuku" which is a thread that runs through the Showtunes idea. Doug Anderson responded to that like a cat to catnip. On first viewing, the visual might appear a bit unusual, foreign even, but trust me, it could have been a lot weirder."
Showtunes will follow Lambchop's TRIP covers album from last year, and features CJ Camerieri on horns, Yo La Tengo's James McNew on upright bass, and Grammy Award-winner Jeremy Ferguson as a co-producer.
