on April 04, 2014, 1:40pm

On June 10th, rising British four-piece Glass Animals will release their debut album, ZABA, on Harvest Records. In anticipation, they’ve recently rolled out a brand new single “Gooey” and rattled off a string of impressive SXSW gigs alongside Banks and Arthur Beatrice. Now, the psych-pop outfit’s traveled down under to unveil a cover of Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak standout “Love Lockdown” for triple j’s Like A Version series. While they keep Yeezy’s sleek melody in tact, the new rendition is made in Glass Animals’ trademark mold — slinky, sticky, and grooving with a certain kind of sensual funkiness. Check it out below.

ZABA Tracklist:
01. Flip
02. Black Mambo
03. Pools
04. Gooey
05. Walla Walla
