Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Cat Power & Cassius Collaborate on New Single “Action”

You'll want to dance

French electronic duo Cassius have collaborated with Cat Power’s Chan Marshall and Beastie Boys’ Mike D to produce dance hit “Action”.

The duos last album was 2006’s 15 Again, but member Philippe Zdar has been keeping busy mixing and producing. He’s also worked with both Mike D and Cat Power on their albums in the past.

Mike D told Pitchfork that the song came about when Zdar played tracks for him and Marshall:

“The song came with this world liberation theme and then I came with a modern-day relationship theme, and somehow the two went together. It’s kind of like toast and Vegemite go together only in Australia.”
