Foster The People's Funky 'Best Friend' Hits The Net

Following yesterday’s official release of our second taste of Foster The People’s forthcoming sophomore effort, Supermodel, with “Pseudologia Fantastica," a less than official stream of second single “Best Friend” has hit the web, and contrary to the sonic explorations of the former, this one has hit written all over it.

While first single “Coming Of Age” expanded upon Foster’s signature, surfy dance-rock, and “Pseudologia Fantastica” channeled the band’s inner My Bloody Valentine/MGMT freak-outs, “Best Friend” is riding the nu-disco wave Daft Punk kicked off with ubiquitous single “Get Lucky” while perhaps spending a little time with early RHCP. More than anything, the takeaway is this: we’re quickly learning the band's got quite the dynamic album on their hands.

Foster's sophomore effort is due out March 18, with the aforementioned video for “Coming Of Age” already finding heavy rotation on REVOLT. Beyond a secret LA show at the base of a massive mural baring the album’s artwork, the group have a slew of dates and festivals lined up, including dates at SXSW, Governors Ball, and New Orleans Jazz Fest.

Already heavy into the promo cycle, the band also recently stopped by BBC’s Radio 1 to debut a cover of Calvin Harris’ “Under Control,” which you can give a listen here. It’ll be interesting to see if more sonic experimentation follows this second release, but with track titles like “The Angelic Welcome of Mr. Jones" and “A Beginner’s Guide To Destroying The Moon” also gracing the album, time will tell how it all comes together.

Give the aforementioned “Best Friend” a listen below, but do it quick before it disappears!
