The Knocks new album is gearing up to be something epic. The New York City pair has nabbed some massive collaborations with the likes of X Ambassadors, Carly Ray Jepson, Cam'ron, Walk The Moon and Wyclef Jean on their debut album 55. They have unleashed the latest track from the LP, "Kiss The Sky" with Jean, a funky jam that effortlessly brings together the talents of both acts.
Wyclef starts by shouting out The Knocks and the band, before getting down in a deep voice the funky, chugging bass line. He brings up his pitch during the catchy hooks as The Knocks bring even more funk to the equation.
"Working with Wyclef has been a surreal experience for us," JPatt tells Complex. "'Kiss The Sky' came together quickly and organically in one of the sessions we were doing in [Wyclef's] home studio. It was one of those times where we all instantly knew that we had created something special, and it immediately became a priority for us to release it to the rest of the world."
Before the album is released, The Knocks are heading out on 21-date, month-long tour kicking off in Brooklyn tonight and eventually ending in Los Angeles on Feb. 13. Cardiknox and SOFI TUKKER will support them for select dates along the way.
