It has been four years since disco purveyors The Juan Maclean have released a proper song and fans of the band do not have to wait any longer with the announcement this week that they will be putting out a brand new single titled "You Are My Destiny" on April 1st via DFA.
The song is streaming now and once again the band hired their go to girl, and ex-LCD Soundsystem member, Nancy Whang to sing the vocals on the track. Listen below:

No firm date for the new Primal Scream album, More Light, in North America yet; however there are rumours that it will come out on May 21st. The band debuted another song off the LP today and it sounds like vintage Rolling Stones. Listen to "It's Alright, It's OK" below:
Record Store Day finally posted the full list of albums that will be available for the annual vinyl promotion- this year on April 20th. Too may records to review here, but if you have a couple of hours to spare check out the full list on the RSD website.
