In a world where we can cure cancer with Facebook likes… wait, never mind.

In a world where the relationship between musicians and their fans is bolstered through social media, pay-what-you-like downloads, and [hopefully] a continued focus on developing legal services that actually adequately compensate the artists, it’s always a neat thing whenever musicians tease that they’ll share a forthcoming tune to drum up some interest (or send their fanbase into a frenzy).

About 8 hours ago, Adelaide’s Hilltop Hoods teased that they would share a track from their upcoming album Walking Under Stars, the group’s 7th studio album set for release later this year. Originally disclosing that “Won’t Let You Down”, featuring London-based rapper Maverick Sabre, would be the album’s first single, the trio pulled off a swerve and released “The Art of the Handshake”.

Stream “The Art of the Handshake” below, and based on their tongue-in-cheek tweet, decide where you fall on the continuum:

knew this would be a jom post. loved the song but wasn't too keen on the spoken word bits

Let me know if they're awesome or if they're not your cup of tea. They're coming to America a la Eddie Murphy, but not anywhere close to me geographically. Bummer.

Oh I've been a fan of these guys for awhile. Kind of a product of being neighbours with Australia I guess. This would be the first time catching them live though

this is pretty cool Jom. i actually dig the spoken word parts. really like just about everything they do. from the older more classic-style hip-hop (fav) to the newer stuff which still feels pretty organic and genuine
