Fans fiending for a new project from The Cool Kids shouldn’t hold their breath. Mikey flat out squashes that dream but brings up a good mentality to have about it, while also revealing the cool cover art to his upcoming solo album, Populair.
Sir Michael Rocks picked the most beautiful day of Chiberia to shoot the new video to “Pull Up” — the first, and club friendly new record off Populair — the follow up to Banco. In fact, he tells Complex, “Populair is the next continuation in the Banco saga which will span from 2014-2024 AD.”
So Mikey’s not retiring anytime soon, which is the opposite of what he said on April Fool’s Day, haha.
Michaels combine for “Bootleg Designer”. The Sir Rocks feature caught my eye and ear as he links with the Bostonian Michael Christmas.
Mikey’s going left field with this new video. He revisits Banco but not for a song and music video… rather a crudely animated video that brings to life the 1:30 skit off the solo album, “Cold Sore Skit”. Needless to say, it was pretty entertaining. And given the content, it may kill whatever appetite you may have, ha! /I was eating. Now I’m not.
Cool Kids back?!
Let’s hope this is the start of more new music to come as Chuck Inglish & Sir Michael Rocks reunite to add their stylings to the minimalistic, thumping “Look At Wrist” by Father (the original features ILOVEMAKONNEN). It’s a perfect beat for The Cool Kids to rock over and both Mikey & Chuck put down some fresh lines to match. This feels right…
