Fresh on the heels of announcing a 2019 headline at Red Rocks, funk outfit Vulfpeck have released the fifth single, “Darwin Derby,” from their upcoming studio album, Hill Climber. The track came with Vulf’s usual accompanying video of the band performing the song in the studio along with some fun animal animation from Janie Korn.
“Darwin Derby” features vocals from Vulfmen Theo Katzman and longtime collaborator Antwaun Stanley. Frequent Vulf collaborators Cory Wong (guitar) and Joey Dosik (sax, piano) also sit in on the session. There’s even a trademark, and hilarious, spoken word section from Jack Stratton. You can check out Vulfpeck’s video for “Darwin Derby” above.
The new track follows previous Hill Climber singles “Lost My Treble Long Ago,” “Soft Parade” (watch the videos for those tracks here), “It Gets Funkier IV” and “Lonely Town.” Hill Climber arrives on Dec. 7.
