IT’S been a busy two years for Man Like Me but the London-based boys are back on the road armed with their long awaited second album, Pillow Talk.
Following their 2009 self-titled debut which treated us to singles Oh My Gosh and Carny, Pillow Talk required music mastermind Mike Skinner to take Johnny Langer and Peter Duffy’s music to the next level.
Skinner helped co-produce and mix the new album which includes last summer’s electro smash, Squeeze and new single, Wallow – a concoction of carnival drums and whistles, muddled electronics, big bass and an insanely infectious chorus.
As well as working with Skinner the pair also collaborated with Jessie Ware who provides vocals alongside frequent collaborator Abe throughout the album. They will also be supporting the Mercury Music Prize nominee at her Shepherds Bush Empire show in March. Check out the rest of the tour dates below.
Here at Pillow, we’re already huge fans of the new album …for obvious reasons. Pillow Talk will be released through The Beats/Cartoon Records on March 3rd but for now, listen to Wallow below.
