The dance pop group RAC is readying a comeback.
On Tuesday, the Portland-based act -- brainchild of producer, songwriter and Grammy-winning remixer Andre Allen Anjos -- shared the latest single from their upcoming album EGO and announced a fall tour.
RAC’s latest single, “I Still Wanna Know,” features a guest appearance from Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo. In a Facebook post announcing the single, which was co-written with the dance duo Classixx, Anjos said that the collaboration was a fulfillment of his teenage fantasies.
“I was the kid at summer camp that would sit in a corner with a walkman trying to figure out how to play Weezer guitar riffs,” Anjos said. “Never in a million years did I think that I would end up writing a song with Rivers Cuomo himself."
The new single follows the release of “This Song,” RAC’s collaboration with former Vampire Weekend member Rotsam. Both tracks will appear on EGO, which is due out July 14 on Counter Records.
RAC also announced a number of new live dates, including stops at The Fonda in Los Angeles on Sept. 20 and Denver’s Bluebird Theater on Sept. 24. These are in addition to previously announced DJ sets in New York, LA and Ibiza, Spain.
