As previously reported, Wasilia, Alaska’s resident psych-rock band Portugal. The Man recruited the incomparable Danger Mouse to produce their seventh studio album, Evil Friends. With the title track displaying clear sings of inspiration from Danger Mouse’s hip-hop/electronic background, the band fully embraces his quirky aesthetic in the album’s second single, “Purple Yellow Red and Blue”. Here, they’ve forged a joyous pop-funk number powered by an infectious drum groove, scratchy piano part, and big, bright harmonies, sounding especially playful and curious as they explore the outer fringes of their psychedelic sound. Stream it below.

Evil Friends is due out June 4th via Atlantic Records.
