Baby Baby's new album Big Boy Baller Club (due out this summer) was already on our list of anticipated albums of 2013. The first single from that record “Keep On Dancin'” only stokes the fire. Catchy, fun, and totally chaotic, the song is canned optimism of the Andrew WK variety. They pushed out the track on MLK Day with the statement “Without Martin Luther King Jr. we can honestly say this band would not exist.” Though the song itself may not make much of a statement beyond “you can do it!” its optimism and positivity is infectious.
The video features the band running through their hometown surrounded by friends in animal masks (and a shark! And a gun-sword!!). Like the song itself it doesn't say much, but it's not trying to. It's about fun and celebrating life. And it's a shit-ton of fun.
You can download the single below now (name your own price, kids!):
