DJ duo Classixx have released "All You're Waiting For," a track from their debut album, Hanging Gardens. The record is out May 14th on Innovative Leisure.

Childhood friends Michael David and Tyler Blake have toured extensively since the release of their 2009 breakthrough single, "I'll Get You." They've leant their funky New Wave talents to remixes of hit songs by Passion Pit, Phoenix, Major Lazer, the Ting Tings and more. Now, on their debut, the pair is in full control of their sound.

"Instrumentally, 'All You're Waiting For' came about the way most of our songs do: just creating some sounds, grooves and chances in our studio," David tells Rolling Stone of the catchy, disco-inspired track. They recorded it with Nancy Whang, formerly of LCD Soundsystem. "Nick from Holy Ghost! let us use his home studio; he even engineered it for us. Tyler and I would sit in Nick's living room, smiling while Nancy sang. We'd pop our heads in for a few notes, but she's a pro and knows the nuances of her voice really well."

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
