Hey Hey My My Yo Yo
Junior Senior announce the release of their all new EP titled, 'Say Hello, Wave Goodbye.' The 7-song EP will be packaged as a companion disc within a limited edition release of 'Hey Hey My My Yo Yo,' on August 14, 2007 via Rykodisc/Crunchy Frog.
Jeppe (Senior) Laursen comments on the new recording, 'We wanted to dance this summer, so we went into the studio. Four days. Wham-bam! I hope people will want to dance to it too.'
In other Junior Senior news, the '80s rap-influenced song 'Hip Hop A Lula' is scheduled to run in upcoming trailers for the new 'Rush Hour 3' movie due out this summer. Television has also responded enthusiastically to 'Hey Hey My My Yo Yo,' with 'Can I Get Get Get' (the album's first single) having recently been featured in an episode of the ABC hit series, 'Ugly Betty.' The song will also be featured in Logo's Summer Supertease promo campaign and 'Itch U Can't Skratch,' has already been used in a previous Logo campaign. Additionally, the track 'Take My Time' has been used in the PSP game 'Lumines 2.'
The video for the first single, 'Can I Get Get Get,' features fan-submitted video footage and appearances by JD of Le Tigre and Peaches, amongst other special surprise guests.
'Hey Hey My My Yo Yo' sees the dynamic Danish duo Junior (aka Jesper Mortensen) Senior (aka Jeppe Laursen) return in top, feel-good form, mashing-up their one of a kind Mamas & the Papas-meets-Sugarhill Gang sound with the manic, party energy that they're known for. The sweet sounding '60s pop, '70s funk and '80s hip-hop inspired album features such notable guest artists as Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson of the B-52's, Le Tigre, and legendary Motown girl group the Velvelettes, as well as Spooner Oldham, the Alabama born organist (and Neil Young keyboardist) behind classics like 'When a Man Loves a Woman,' and 'Mustang Sally.' The album was produced by Junior, co-produced by Thomas Troelsen, and mixed by David Leonard in Nashville.
