Canadian deep house duo Art Department (pictured) are gearing up toward the release of their sophomore album Natural Selection, which is set to release Nov. 18. The album’s first single is titled Cruel Intentions, and it features none other than Seth Troxler on vocal duties.
Paying homage to AD’s 2011 album The Drawing Board, Cruel Intentions is a weird and experimental offering that features mesmerizing vocals from Troxler and a mind-bending rhythm. Falling halfway between the sinister and the sexy, the single is a dark, moody offering that feels like a techno lover’s lucid dream.
