Stream Chromeo's 'Quarantine Casanova' EP
All proceeds from EP sales will be donated to charity
Published Jun 12, 2020Chromeo have dropped off their Quarantine Casanova EP, and you can stream the entire thing right now. The release features five new tracks from the duo, alongside their respective instrumentals
"Honestly, it started as a joke," the group's Dave 1 said in a statement. "At the beginning of quarantine, we hunkered down in our studio, freestyled a song called 'Clorox Wipe' and posted it online to cheer people up. The response was overwhelming. So we wrote another one, and another one. Fans kept asking if we were going to release them for real, so after a couple of weeks, we obliged."
P-Thugg added, "As usual, it's a high brow-low brow thing with us. These are obviously the funniest tracks we've ever written, but they connected in such a visceral way. We figured if we were to put them out, there would have to be a charity and an awareness component."
Quarantine Casanova is available for purchase digitally and on white vinyl through Bandcamp, along with a poster and shirt featuring the above cover art. All proceeds from digital and physical sales of the EP and merch will be donated to Colin Kaepernick's Know Your Rights Camp COVID-19 Relief Fund.
The pair add that they are also at work on an animated short for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, "to accompany the EP and raise awareness about mental health issues surrounding the global pandemic."
Quarantine Casanova marks Chromeo's first new material since 2018's Head Over Heels. Recently, Dave 1 also launched a new project the Brothers Macklovitch with his brother A-Trak.
