The always eclectic Theophilus London is back with a new single, and he’s got some friends with him. For the lively, genre-bending “Tribe,” Theophilus links up with Jesse Boykins III on vocal assistance and Brodinski on production. The single is from his upcoming VIBES! album, coming this fall.

The single art was shot be legendary designer Karl Lagerfeld, who directed and took all photos for the album. “I met Karl maybe three years ago,” London said. “[My agent] called me with Karl on speaker and Karl was like, ‘Yes, I’ll shoot your cover.’ I was freaking out, screaming. I was like a kid. I’ve always admired him. He’s a genius in so many different ways.”

“Tribe” is out on iTunes now.
