Johnny Clegg & Jesse Clegg and “DNA” (The Keys) are out now. Check them out HERE. “Fire In Your House” ft. Johnny Clegg & Jesse Clegg comes alongside a music video which was directed by Nina Kramer.

This follows the first exciting drop of music from earlier this summer which featured their explosive first single “Can You Handle My Love??” which the band also performed on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers (watch HERE), as well as tracks “Giants” and “I’m Good.” Listen HERE.
The band has been in the studio, working remotely in many cases, finishing up their highly anticipated fourth studio album titled HEIGHTS which will be released on November 12th, 2021. With the band members separated from each other and from their producers, they often collaborated virtually, building this new body of work in a way they never have before.
About “Fire In Your House”, Nicholas Petricca says, “This song was born from a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration with legendary South African artist and activist Johnny Clegg and his son Jesse Clegg, a recording session that would be Johnny’s very last before his passing. Through his unprecedented music, which celebrated and intertwined African and Western styles and languages, and his defiance of the race laws of Apartheid, Johnny Clegg became an international symbol of uniting people in diversity. It’s an honor to have created music together with the Cleggs, and I’m excited for WALK THE MOON listeners to hear the New Wave and African flavors on FIRE IN YOUR HOUSE as well as the tribal and hypnotic textures on DNA (THE KEYS).”
WALK THE MOON will be hitting the road this fall on their “Dream Plane” tour which kicks off September 20th, 2021 in Tampa, FL. Tickets are on sale now.
