Click to listen to Penguin Prison's 'Don't Fuck With My Money'

Penguin Prison's new single, "Don't Fuck With My Money," updates the smooth, effortlessly funky sound of late Seventies disco classics by Chic and Michael Jackson with a sleek modern production style that recalls hits by Phoenix, Scissor Sisters and Hot Chip. The entire track is a groovy delight, but the soaring, falsetto-heavy climax is particularly excellent. Penguin Prison's debut album is in stores now, but you can download "Don't Fuck With My Money" for free here.

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.
