0 0

Katy Perry teamed up with Taylor Swift's ex-boyfriend for a steamy disco romance song.  Plus, why are Fitz and the Tantrums talking about underwear?

 

Calvin Harris (Ft. Pharrell Williams, Katy Perry, and Big Sean) - Feels

 This is the music industry team-up we never knew we wanted (or just secretly wanted) until now.  And, man, does this song deliver.  Calvin Harris effortlessly borrows from several music styles from 70's era disco and yacht rock to Ska!  Kudos to him for doing that with such ease.  Which is why instrumental versions of this song are popular on YouTube.  It's infectious.

Now, onto the lyrics for this one.  While many speculate this song is about Taylor Swift, that's definitely not the case.  I mean, those two broke up a year ago... time to move on!  The song is about a summer fling and chronicles the psychedelic feelings a person get when the chemistry starts bubbling. 

Honestly, it's a catchy summer tune that's perfect to vibe out to while sitting on the beach with your friends,  It's easy listening and carefree. 

Harris’s new album Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 comes out on June 30.

 

 

Fitz and the Tantrums - Fool

Just when we finally got "HandClap" out of our heads, Fitz and the Tantrums are back again with another sensational song.  "Fool" is all about making you smile and sway back and forth to this perfect summer song.  It's catchy, it's zany, and the music video is absolutely HI-larious. No, seriously, it's the goofiest thing I've ever watched and I couldn't stop laughing.

So, why did these guys come out with new music after they released their new album?  Well, here's what Michael “Fitz” Fitzpatrick had to say about that:

“My mama always said wear fresh underwear for the summer. Here’s our fresh summer jam just for you!”

So, there you have it.  These guys dropped this new song because they wanted to keep your summer song list fresh and fun.  Plus, this song will be added to their DELUXE album, Fitz and the Tantrums, which arrives on July 28.

The album will feature bonus tracks, live recordings, and a remix of "Fool."

Plus, you'll get to hear them sing this song live at the next Star 99.9 Michael's Jewelers Acoustic Session.  Keep listening to win tickets... or enter to win HERE.
