While the two previous songs from Laetitia Sadier's upcoming solo album fit in the wheelhouse of her work with Stereolab, her latest single goes in a completely different direction. "Who + What" still has the retro cool vibe that we've loved from Stereolab for decades, but the song doesn't sound anything like Sadier's other musical project. The song employs a choir and is much vocals based than we've heard from the upcoming Rooting for Love. The song has an interesting quality that is almost like a musical, where it feels like the various voices are having a conversation in song. It's an interesting and unique song style that still feels like it's from a member of Stereolab without sounding like Stereolab.
You can listen to "Who + What" below. Rooting for Love is due out February 23 on Drag City Records, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Laetitia Sadier, check out the artist on Instagram. Upcoming tour dates are below the song.
