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."

“Road to Nowhere”

Talking Heads | 1985

A cappella harmonies give way to an a fuller arrangement blending pop and electro-disco on "Road to Nowhere," but the theme remains constant: We're on an eternal journey to an undefined destination. The song vaulted back into the news a quarter century after it was a hit when Gov. Charlie Crist used it in his unsuccessful 2010 campaign for the U.S. Senate in Florida. "It's this little ditty about how there's no order and no plan and no scheme to life and death and it doesn't mean anything, but it's all right," Byrne said with a chuckle.
