The Juan Maclean — the duo of DJ/producer Juan Maclean and former LCD Soundsystem keyboardist Nancy Whang — have announced plans for a new studio album. Due out September 9th via DFA Records, In a Dream serves as the follow-up to both 2009’s The Future Will Come and 2011’s “odds and ends collection”, Everybody Get Close. In a press release, Maclean and Whang describe the nine-track effort as Whang’s “triumph” and “the Nancy Show”.
Those are certainly apt descriptor’s for the album’s lead single/opening track, “A Place Called Space”. Whang’s presence and influence is felt all over the track, from the layers of New Wave synths to her monotone croon that drips with a very specific kind of raw sexuality. For his part, Maclean happily plays back-up, infusing the track with dense drum machines and shards of bass as to further play up Whang’s enthralling performance.
