On September 23rd, Warpaint will return with their third album, Heads Up. The follow-up to their excellent 2014 self-titled release was produced by Jacob Bercovici, and for the first time ever, saw the Los Angeles outfit record in pairs and alone rather than as a full band.

“The doors were a little more open in terms of what was accepted and what wasn’t, because we were sharing ideas so rapidly between us,” says the band’s drummer Stella Mozgawa of the recording process. “The roles that each of us individually had — or had established — were a little more malleable.”

Heads Up was said to be influenced by the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Janet Jackson, and Outkast, and the latest offering “Whiteout” certainly captures some of these artists’ sense of rhythm. “You know what I want, to know the secrets in your heart,” Warpaint sing and slinkily groove over curling guitar lines.

The track was debuted live back in July, but its official studio version has been shared up above. Check it out.
