Hive Mind, the Internet's first new album since 2015's Grammy-nominated Ego Death, is out in a little less than a month. But before Hive season gets into full swing (and before the group hits the road with Gorillaz), Syd and company have gifted fans with a Tonight Show rendition of "Come Over."
The track was first unveiled last month, followed shortly after by the Hive Mind single's Syd-directed official video. Catch the Tonight Show performance up top.
"After making a few songs we realized that we really want to use this album to live by example and promote camaraderie amongst young black people," Syd said of the Hive Mind sessions in a press release. "We realized that we're the only band of our kind. And we want to really solidify ourselves as that, as the best."
In the years between Ego Death and Hive Mind, Syd and the rest of the Internet—Steve Lacy, Matt Martians, Christopher Smith, and Patrick Paige II—have all built up their respective individual creative voices in respective solo releases. As "Come Over" and the recently released "Roll (Burbank Funk)" make quite clear, the group is now sounding stronger than ever.
In addition to a run of Gorillaz-supporting dates starting in October, the Internet will also hit Germany's Melt Festival and San Francisco's Outside Lands in the coming months. Find their full itinerary here.
