Sixth months ago we premiered the The Knocks' collaboration with Brooklyn's X Ambassadors. It was is what we've come to expect from the duo: bombastic, funk-finagled, and fun, it was a dance track that had us dreaming of martinis and yachts moored off the coast of Miami. I really didn't think they could pack more #goodvibes into a cut but whatever, they've done it again. 

Below is the exclusive premiere of their latest single "Classic" featuring Powers. It's a straight up summer smash, the kind of dance track that hangs in an era-less vacuum; the kind of tune makes you feel like you're in a movie montage, that begins in the hazy magic hour and splices together every amazing moment till dawn. But enough of me waxing on. B-Roc and JPatt have something specific they'd like to communicate about the song themselves. Here's the song and a letter from The Knocks.
