Ahead of his headlining tour in Brooklyn starting tomorrow (October), George Clinton, the Steam Legend and founder of 100% Electronic, has released a new single, “Fucking Up My Life.” The track to his long-awaited upcoming album contains details of Clinton’s love-hate relationship with the emerging artist (and Clinton’s frequent copilot) negative Gemini and Turing যেমন as he likes and travel hates her again.
“I’ve been working on my new album for the last two years,” Clinton told Spin via email. “It was hard to choose which song could be released before this tour, but it had to be ‘Fucking Up My Life’ because the song was written to go live. The songs are a love letter to perform live. I never had a bad time on the tour, from breaking my ankle to losing money to sleeping on the floor, but I like it and can’t leave. We shot the video a few weeks before the tour and it was time to go live when I was in NYC. I was on the plane to go! I’m pumping. “
Watch the video for “Fucking Up My Life” below.
Speaking of Clinton’s desire to travel despite the difficulties, there are some combinations of Magdalena Bay, Negative Gemini, Whites X and Caroline Loveglore on each date in her month-long tour. See the full list of travel dates below.
