In preparation of their forthcoming album Already Ready Already (out Feb. 8), NOLA funk staple Galactic have shared a new single off the release called “Going Straight Crazy.”

The new tune also features the soulful vocals of fellow New Orleans musician Princess Shaw, who was recently the subject of the 2016 documentary Presenting Princess Shaw. 

According to a press release, Galactic’s new LP will be filled with “a diverse array of predominantly young female singers” who each leave their mark on the compositions.

“Trust me, I loved having Macy Gray and Mavis Staples on our last record,” Galactic Mercurio explained in a statement. “It was an honor to work with them. But there’s something fun about making music with someone not everybody has heard of and end up getting a great reaction to it. There are no preconceived thoughts as to what the song should be like because the listener doesn’t know the artist as well.”
