YACHT release cover track + announce tour dates


YACHT has released a new track to promote their upcoming European tour. The new song is a cover of iconic avant-garde French singer Brigitte Fontaine’s “Le Goudron.” The track is a surrealist revolutionary song originally recorded in 1969 with The Art Ensemble of Chicago; YACHT has reinvented and reworked the track to fill modern day dance floors.

Watch the video below which was shot at The Smell in LA.

MP3: YACHT – Le Goudron (Edit)

Eventhough Claire L. Evans of YACHT was raised in France, this is the first song YACHT has ever recorded in French. YACHT said about the song, “we can only hope that our frantic, starry-eyed cribbing of Brigitte Fontaine makes us better people. In the meantime, we wanted to pay homage.”

The band has been touring extensively and continue with dates throughout Europe and the US.
