Carpark records prodigy Toro Y Moi has dropped another track, New Beat, from his next album and it’s a true funk masterpiece. New Beat will feature on Toro Y Moi’s forthcoming album Underneath The Pine due out on the 22nd February. We expect the album will move away from Toro’s original chillwave stance and move towards 70s infused disco having previously heard Still Sound the first single from Underneath The Pine. We wait patiently, for now, hear New Beat below.
