Former Velvet Underground member John Cale has just released “I Wanna Talk 2 U,” which he co-produced with Danger Mouse. The song is the opening track off John Cale’s forthcoming album, “Shifty Adventures in Nookie Wood,” out October 2nd on Domino Records imprint Double Six.
As John says of the track:
“Danger Mouse and I kept trying to find time to record together and we found a 48-hour window a few years back and ended up with something like 3 or 4 songs. When I was recording this album, I realized I’d written a few songs in a similar vein and recalled one of the songs Brian and I started but had never finished. So I thought I’d finish writing it and see if it felt as close to the album as I had begun to envisage. Then when it was done, I thought, it’s got the right opening vibe for my story!”
The Cale and Danger Mouse collaboration finds the pair simultaneously fusing disco, Motown and ’60s rock with some experimental flourishes into a pretty fantastic result.
