Chromeo has teamed up with La Roux's Elly Jackson for a dynamic electro-funk duet, "Hot Mess." The original version appears on Chromeo's latest album, Business Casual (Big Beat/Atlantic), but Jackson took a shine to the Canadian duo and offered to lend vocals to the new and recently completed redux. "Hot Mess" marks a rare appearance for Jackson outside of her work as La Roux.

"Hot Mess" itself is an ice-cold break up number, not unlike classic '80s duets by Prince & Sheena Easton, the Pet Shop Boys & Dusty Springfield, or The Human League. "Hot Mess" will be released as a single complete with remixes by Turbo Recordings founder Tiga and Duck Sauce who recently dominated international charts with the single, "Barbra Streisand." Chromeo recently worked with Parisian design house Surface To Air to produce the stunning video for "Hot Mess" which premiered online earlier this week, receiving attention from mainstream sites and taste-making blogs alike. Carrying the momentum into the New Year, the duo of Dave 1 and P-Thugg will hit the road for a string of US dates this winter.
