"Cruel Intentions," which is taken from Art Department's forthcoming Natural Selection LP, sounds like what you'd expect Art Department and Seth Troxler tracks would sound like. There's something sinister in the dark techno instrumental, with intense, hypnotic vocals from the legendary Troxler that err on the side of sex. It's a track that pays homage to their collaborations on the Art Department's 2011 album The Drawing Board, and helps fill a void in the dance music scene, where you can have pulsating techno tracks with awesome lyrics laid on top.

The "Cruel Intentions" single drops on October 27, with Natural Selection set for release on November 18.
