Sofi Tukker announce ‘R.I.P. Shame, Pt. 1’ EP

The duo have also shared the first track to be taken from it, ‘Swing’.

Sofi Tukker have announced plans to release a brand new EP, ‘R.I.P. Shame, Pt. 1’, which is set for release on 20th September

The duo, who released their stomping debut album ‘Treehouse’ last year, have also shared a brand new track, ‘Swing’.

Speaking of their new musical offering, the band have said: “This song always felt like an epic battle song. It’s more like a chant than a song, really. It’s called “swing” because we literally swing the song after Tuck says that. We collaborated with the Brazilian poet, Chacal, and the words are about words!! Like a lot of the things we do with Chacal, part of the meaning of it is just how nonsensical it is. It’s really about how delicious and delightful and also meaningless words ultimately are.””

The surreal new clip for ‘Swing’ comes directed by Charles Todd and was shot on location at Centro Ceremonial Otomí in Temoaya. Watch the video below.

They’ve also announced plans for a hefty world tour - check out the tour dates below.
