After making their triumphant return in July with the fearsome single "Safe And Sound," Justice are back at it again with another new song, "Randy." The new song is the second single to emerge from Justice's long-awaited new album Woman, due out later this year.
The French electronic duo tab Diamond Nights singer Morgan Phalen to add some very Tame Impala-sounding vocals on the song. Phalen has worked with the group on two other tracks and the orchestra is found on most of the album.
The new single is a bit softer than "Safe And Sound." There are still hints at the harder electro edge that fans came to love Justice for, but this is clearly something very different from the group.
It has the structure of a pop song with verse and hook, but at 6 minutes and 38 seconds, it takes the time to dive into the excesses of the disco era with strings and synth solos. It can be a bit drawn out at times, but also is brilliantly arranged.
This is one of those records that will need to settle in for a little while and might be better digested in the context of the album.
Woman will be the follow up to 2011's Audio, Video, Disco. It will be released later this year.
