Portugal The Man: Interview + New Single

Apr 18th | categories: Music, Music News

Tuesday night was a special one for The End. It doesn't take being a DJ here to know that modern radio doesn't allow for a ton of improvisation, but that's exactly what happened when John from Portugal The Man dropped by to hang out, play the new album for us, chat about said forthcoming record, "Evil Friends" (due out 6/4) and more or less, take over the radio station. While it's tough to replicate the excitement of the evening (if you happened to be in your car at the time, you know the extra special treats you got) we certainly wanted to throw up the highlights as well as put a spotlight on stellar new single, "Purple, Yellow, Red, and Blue". Have a listen to it all below and be sure to catch the band at Coachella weekend 2 if you're headed that way.

Part 1: John talks working with famed producer Danger Mouse who's credits include Gorillaz, Jack White, Beck, The Black Keys, and more...

Part 2: We chat about the story behind the brilliant forthcoming album cut, "Sea Of Air", what kind of vibe the record gives off, and how many songs you have to write before you've got a record.
