Man Like Me have announced their new album ‘Pillow Talk’, released through The Beats / Cartoon Records on March 3.
The record, co-produced and mixed by Mike Skinner, has been recorded over the last two years and includes last summer’s cult smash single ‘Squeeze’, which Sunday Times Culture called “A bonkers and brilliant electro sugar-rush that deserves to be the hit of the summer”.
Man Like Me are London based duo Johnny Langer and Peter Duffy. Their debut album ‘Man Like Me’ was released in 2009 and spurned the singles ‘Oh My Gosh’ and ‘Carny’.
The band are famed for their riotous live shows, which feature (among other things) dance routines, full brass sections, processions through the audience, swinging from chandeliers (really) and usually Johnny stripping almost naked.
Johnny and Peter forged a relationship with Mike Skinner earlier in 2012, when he was drafted in to mix a couple of tracks for the new album. He instantly fell in love with the band and insisted on having input on the entire record.
Backing vocals are provided in the most part by frequent collaborator Ade, except on ‘Lovestruck’, ‘Chinatown’ and ‘Fleetwood Mac’, which feature vocals from Jessie Ware.
A headline tour for 2013 will be announced soon.
