Sofi Tukker is kicking off back-to-school season with an upbeat new party track, “Purple Hat.” The song appears on the group’s upcoming EP Dancing on the People, whose name is taken directly from its lyrics. The collection arrives September 20 via Animal Talk.
“We wrote ‘Purple Hat’ the day after our first Animal Talk party,” the band shares of the song. “We started throwing these parties to bring back the wild and inclusive dancing vibe to the nightclub experience. Tuck was literally wearing a purple hat and a cheetah print shirt, people were climbing on top of people, it was over sold out and sweaty, our favorite people were packed in the booth, everyone was loose AF and feeling themselves. It was wild. Every Animal Talk party since then has been like that, and we wanted to capture that raw feeling in a song. If there was a song that included everything we are about, this would be the one.”
