Café Tacvba have released the official music video for their new song “Futuro.” The trippy clip was filmed in Buenos Aires with director Diego Tucci in collaboration with vocalist Rubén Albarrán.
With a combative tone and influences from Latin American folk to experimental electronica, Quique Rangel and Rubén Albarrán share lead vocals on “Futuro.” Since its release on New Year’s Day, the song has quickly generated millions of streams, with strong momentum on the radio charts and digital music services. The song was recorded at Ocean Studios in Burbank, California with production by the legendary Argentine producer Gustavo Santaolalla, who has worked with the band since their first album. Drums were recorded by Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms for Peace, Johnny Cash), who the band collaborated with on their album “Cuatro Caminos.”
Quique, the song’s writer and composer, reflects on its inspiration:
“The relationship between life and death and the perception of time are two themes that ‘Futuro‘ explores without solemnity or optimism. But it also points to a brighter promise if we allow ourselves to recognize the here and now (without the desire to be a self-help song).”
“Futuro” follows the group’s recent single “Un Par De Lugares” which debuted at #3 on the Spotify “Global Viral Chart” this past fall. The two tracks preview their upcoming studio album which will be released this spring.
The new album will be their first release since “El Objeto Antes Llamado Disco” in 2012, which was nominated for a GRAMMY in the “Best Latin Rock, Urban, Alternative Album” category and won a Latin GRAMMY for “Best Music Video – Longform.”
