Aeroplane Announce New Single ‘Superstar” with Chromeo + The Krays Remxies

Aeroplane’s eagerly anticipated debut album, We Can’t Fly, set for release 27th September on Wall of Sound in the UK, arrives with sky-high hopes. Aeroplane established themselves as party-starting DJs, remixers du jour – with spacious, cosmic-disco re-rubs of Grace Jones (William’s Blood), Friendly Fires (Paris), Sebastien Tellier (Kilometer) and as leaders of the nu-disco and Balearica scene.
Following on from first single – We Can’t Fly, which was immediately playlisted at Radio 1, Aeroplane releases the second single from the album – Superstar on September 13th 2010.
A huge inspiration for Aeroplane has been synthesizer pioneer, Giorgio Moroder whose gleaming electronic scores for Scarface and Midnight Express have fed into this propulsive, piano-led track, which Vito describes as “Moroder meets Canned Heat”. Superstar features vocoder vocals from Vito himself, but Moroder was so impressed that he laid down vocals for an alternative version which will be released later this year.
The single package includes stunning remixes from The Krays (Yuksek & Brodinski) and Chromeo, who offer their Midas touch on an already ‘hot as hell’ record.
Along with numerous festival appearances this summer, including a much coveted headline DJ set at Bestival, Aeroplane prepare for the first ever live tour.
