Listen: Rocket Juice and the Moon - "Hey Shooter (ft. Erykah Badu)"

Rocket Juice and the Moon

Genre-crossing supergroup Rocket Juice and the Moon have finally let out a taste of their debut album. The self-titled full-length will be the first release of any kind from the group, which consists of Blur/Gorillaz frontman Damon Albarn, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea and Fela Kuti drummer Tony Allen.

Strangely enough, the band’s first revealed track, “Hey, Shooter”, is far less about its eclectic members than its guest singer, Erykah Badu. In any case, “Hey, Shooter” is a funky, spacey track that manages to sound like something totally outside Albarn, Flea, and Allen’s comfort zones without coming off as amateur at all. Rocket Juice and the Moon’s debut full-length album is due out March 27 in the U.S. (a day earlier in the UK) via Albarn’s own Honest Jon’s. Listen to track two, “Hey, Shooter” and check out the full tracklist below.
