New live recording from forthcoming three-track single

Following up on last year's album Fabiola, Afro-Brazilian-influenced tropicalia collective Da Lata have announced a new digital and 12" single, out on June 30 via Agogo Records. Both feature a drum & bass rework of Fabiola's 'Deixa' from Brazilian duo Drumagick and a live cut of 'Ronco Da Cuica', originally by Joao Bosco (have a listen above and watch the video below), while the vinyl adds another Fabiola, a remix of 'Unknown' by the recently-reunited Eddy & Dus, featuring Cape Verdean singer Mayra Andrade.

The band will also be playing a run of shows in July (with a set at the FlipSide festival in Suffolk in October) after the single's release - take a look at the dates below and head to Agogo's website to pre-order:

Tue 1 - Rich Mix, London
Sun 13 - Topolski, London
Sat 19 - Brazilica Fest, Liverpool
Sun 20 - Rhythm Tree Festival, Isle Of Wight
