Electronic pop duo YACHT are releasing a new album titled I Thought the Future Would Be Cooler, which will be out this fall via Downtown Records. The album was initially announced via a billboard, and on Friday, the group revealed the tracklist via a track-listicle on Buzzfeed titled 11 Ways We Thought the Future Would Be Cooler. It features a series of gifs rife with pop culture references, including a Tupac Hologram, Stephanie Tanner from Full House, and the classic Maxell ad with the guy in the chair. Take a look at one highlight below, along with the album’s tracklist.
2. WHITE MIRROR
Our species has never quite been able to stop itself from grabbing technology, turning it around, and using it as a mirror. Only now the mirror is everything: we are surrounded by representations and reflections of ourselves, avatars, profiles, front-facing cameras. Identity is weird.
