Funk duo Chromeo announced the upcoming release of their fifth studio album on Wednesday, which is to be titled Head Over Heels. The album is due out on June 15, and will be accompanied by a lengthy world tour across the U.K., Europe and North America starting later this month on May 24 in London. A few hours following the album’s announcement on Wednesday, the band were appearing on Jimmy Fallon’s “Tonight Show” to perform one of their singles in “Must’ve Been” with help from DRAM, house band The Roots and Jesse Johnson, who was famously part of Prince’s former funk rock group, The Time.

The very dance-friendly performance of “Must’ve Been” can be watched in full via the video above. The track’s light and effortless musical makeup makes it the perfect soundtrack for the outdoor concert season. Chromeo have made a career out of bringing older funk and disco sounds and styles into the 21st century, and prove once again with “Must’ve Been” that their updated mix of pop and disco is still as strong as ever, especially when performing with acts like The Roots and DRAM.

Chromeo were just out in southern California to perform at both weekends of Coachella, and will be gearing up for the start of their huge world tour run in a few weeks. The North American leg of the tour will start on June 8 with their appearance at Bonnaroo, followed by their own headlining dates throughout the remainder of the month and into early July. Notable stops on their U.S. and Canadian run include shows at New York City’s Terminal 5 on June 15, and Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre with The Glitch Mob and Elohim on June 28.

Tickets for select shows on the band’s upcoming summer tour are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
