New album and supporting tour from GRiZ

GRiZ just posted a streaming preview of "The Anthem" featuring Mike Avery. It is contemporary funk at it's finest and reminds me a lot of Fort Knox Five. He has a new album out in March called 'Say It Loud'.

GRiZ had a ton of fun making this track. Here are his thoughts on "The Anthem":

"For this record I first went out to New York to record with some of the Daptone Records guys to get the main groove of the tune. Then I had to travel out to Van Nuys to record a children's choir, which was the most nerve racking thing I have done in my entire life! Having a group of 7-11 year olds sing your song is quite the feeling. I finished up the song with Mike Avery in Chicago, and he was one super soulful dude that really captured the golden era funk vibes that I love so much. Overall, this track is a total funk dance party that needs to be enjoyed with friends, preferably in a room full of disco balls.”
