BE PART by Kocky (feat. Jens Lekman & Rosanna).

You may recall (I'm sure you do!) that last December we posted a podcast that Stu did with Jens Lekman over in Iceland. You can watch it again here. During their little chat, Stu asked Jens how his new record was coming along, and Jens said it was almost finished. Fast forward to today and it is quite finished (but hasn't yet been released in the U.S.A.). Definitely pick it up on October 9, it's excellent.

Jens was also talking about about how much he enjoyed collaborating with other artists in the podcast, and today's track is the fruit of one such collaboration. What little I've read about Kocky is his debut album was a big deal this summer in Sweden, and on the evidence of "Be Part" (aka "Be Part Of It All"?), the hype is deserved. It's pop electronic dance music not a million miles from Justice or Daft Punk. It's so good it has a video! Check it out below the fold.
