Chromatics "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" (Cyndi Lauper cover) (snippet)
We expected Chromatics to release their album Dear Tommy early in 2015, and while it still hasn't arrived, they've now shared a cover of Cyndi Lauper's classic "Girls Just Want to Have Fun" as part of a MANGO commercial.

The song — which was first released by Robert Hazard in 1979, but was made famous by Lauper in 1983 — is much less joyous in this form. Instead of a banging pop anthem, Chromatics turn it into a icy dance groove that's in keeping with their signature Italo-disco sound. This serves as the soundtrack to flashy, black and white footage of Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne showing off their clothes.

Hear 30 seconds of the track in the commercial below. The full song will be released later this month, at the same time that the commercial begins airing on television.

Additionally, Chromatics will release a new single from Dear Tommy on September 8.
