New York, NY (Top40 Charts) Escort has released an out of control, clever new video for album single "Outta My Head," premiered with Rolling Stone today. A meticulous shot-for-shot remake of Journey "Separate Ways" official video, the resulting product is yet another example of the spectacular humor and creativity which fans have come to expect from NYC's premiere disco outfit. The band earned early notoriety for this when the "All Through The Night" Muppet disco video went viral. The Village Voice (later featuring the band on the cover) declared "Jim Henson is doing the Hustle in his grave."
"The video for "Separate Ways" is so perfect. After we landed on that, we soon found that there is a rich online history of people recreating that exact video," explains band founder/keyboardist Eugene Cho. "For our version, we really wanted to just hold a mirror up to it. We're not trying to exaggerate it or mock it. All the amazing 80s video tropes, the pure intensity of the performances and the bizarre air instrument gag make it so special."

Escort will release their long awaited new album City Life this Friday, April 12. Their most expansive and collaborative album yet, City Life teems with the urban kinetic energy hinted at in the album's title-nine tracks spanning dub reggae, house, Brazilian pop, and the glittery shine of disco equally suitable for your headphones and a night out on the town.

Nicki B's vocal performance is accentuated by guests including NYC disco-R&B icon Fonda Rae, Lone Ranger, and Brian Jackson best known for his fusion of political jazz, blues and soul in partnership with Gil Scott-Heron. Adelinealso appears on several tracks. Escort draw on a mix of contemporary and classic influences throughout-from the sounds of NYC dance music circa the late 1970s and early '80s to the various permutations of disco and house music that continue to keep bodies moving this very day. The band is incorporating a leaner, meaner stage setup for the City Life live show. With a national tour kicking off April 17 in NYC, they're connecting more than ever with the beating heart that is dance music's communal pulse.
