“We've been obsessed with The-Dream since ‘Fast Car' from his first album. To us, he's a modern day funk auteur, like Prince or El Debarge. This song pays homage to our favorite work of his,” says frontman Dave 1 of the new glistening R&B jam.
Tickets for the dates go on sale this Friday,February 2 at 10 a.m. local time, with fan presales beginning tomorrow, January 30, at 12p.m. local time (password: bedroomcalling).

Head Over Heels, their fifth full length, is their most polished, ambitious and collaborative work to date, featuring studio veterans like Pino Palladino (D'Angelo, The Who) and Jesse Johnson (Prince, The Time, D'Angelo) alongside guest appearances by DRAM, The-Dream and many more.
