Electric Guest Return With Homegrown Music Video for New Single ‘Dollar’: Watch


Asa Taccone and Matthew Compton — otherwise known as Electric Guest — have made an eclectic return with feel-good anthem "Dollar."

Their latest release since 2017's Plural, the single marks the group's transition from indie to pop in anticipation of their first LP with Atlantic Records, due in October.

The song also comes with a music video, directed by Taccone's older brother Jorma of The Lonely Island. Shot entirely in the brothers' hometown of Oakland and featuring many of their friends and family members, Taccone called the visual a "family affair."

"From my little cousin doing doughnuts in a recycling plant to our friend Matt letting us drive his DeLorean hovercraft in the San Francisco Bay, everything was a favor," Taccone said in a press release. "In this 'Money Is Everything' culture the song serves to have a different message: you are of value even if you only have a dollar in your pocket.”

Electric Guest will be celebrating the release of their new album with a live show at Rough Trade Records in Brooklyn on Oct. 15.
