The song, 'DoYaThing,' will be available for download tomorrow (Feb. 23) on the Converse website, but a radio rip is up now at ListenBeforeYouBuy.net. The verdict: It's not quite 'Hey Ya,' 'Losing My Edge' or 'Feel Good, Inc.,' but the tune does all involved parties proud.
"I'm a pale imitator of a boy in the sky, with a cap on his head and a knot in his tie," Albarn sings at the start, nasal as ever atop a brisk electro-pop beat.
Then Murphy comes in and drops a falsetto chorus: "You want to do it, but you don't know what you're doing, baby."
Andre carries the tune's second half, singing a few bars and then motor-mouthing a characteristically stellar rap that culminates with, "Do you damn thang, do you thang-a-thang."
It's just dandy for dancing, whether you're rocking Hewlett's limited-edition camouflage Chucks or that ratty pair you've been wearing since the last time one of these three acts tricked you out on the floor.
