Mac DeMarco joins forces with Alan Palomo on “Nudista Mundial ’89"

The single marks the first time Alan Palomo – AKA Neon Indian – is releasing music under his own name.

Eight years ago, Alan Palomo released Vega Intl. Night School, as Neon Indian. “Toyota Man" – 2019's pro-immigrant protest song which saw Palomo singing entirely in Spanish for the first time – followed the album, but a part from a string of remixes, Palomo has been pretty quiet on the music front.

“While working on a few tunes, I was trying to get a hold of this certain piano. My keyboard player told me Mac had one at his studio so I hit him up. And on one breezy day in May, we sang a duet about two guys going to a nude beach together in Ibiza," Palomo says.

Palomo produced “Nudista Mundial ’89” and handled the vocals, synthesizers, and drum programming. DeMarco helped with vocal engineering.

The single is accompanied by an animated music video which was directed by Palomo and is inspired by the 1980s adult video game Leisure Suit Larry.

"Nudista Mundial '89" is out now.
