We've been eStalking Michael Fitzpatrick and his band of Tantrums ever since the day they announced that they'd be taking a break from touring to write and record the follow-up to their 2010 debut; hanging on each tweet and YouTube upload in hopes of hearing even a 10 second snippit of a brand new FATT tune. The time for teasing is over!
We proudly present to you 'Out of My League' from Fitz & the Tantrums' forthcoming full length release 'More Than Just a Dream':
The Tantrums are clearly aiming to break out of the retro-soul mold with 'Out of My League' - It's surprisingly saxaphone-less with a tight drum machine driven groove and a big synth + guitar stacked chorus that feels more 80's than 60's but in the best possible way:
So what do you think? Is the vibe of 'Out of My League' working for you or do you long for mo' Motown from Fitz & the Tantrums? Cast your vote or leave a comment below!
'More Than Just a Dream' is slated for release on May 7th and while 'Out of My League' is only avilable to stream at the moment, it will be made available for download via iTunes with full album preorder options soon. Be sure to check out Michael's recent interview with Rollingstone for more on that new Tantrums sound.
