Fat White Family have teamed up with Baxter Dury for their latest track

Fat White Family have shared a new track called 'Tastes Good With The Money'. You can hear it above via the Roisin Murphy-directed video.

The track features Baxter Dury and is the latest to be unveiled from their forthcoming album Serfs Up!

Talking about the video, Roisin Murphy said: "I've been making it known for years how much I wanted to make a video for this band. I'm a massive fan of FWF and I've been chasing this opportunity for a long time. I used every possible connection I had, I have asked people to ask people, I've contacted the band on social media, I really set my heart on this. For me there's such a charm about them and an authenticity that's actually incredibly rare. I knew I could not possibly work with a more magnetic bunch of performers.

"The idea of referencing Monty Python partly came out of the somewhat absurd and confusing political landscape that we are now living in Britain, Python seems prescient. The British laughing at themselves, a certain kind glee even in the loss of empire, singing as the ship goes down, well it just seems so...of the moment. There is this deep ambivalence to the establishment that resonates with the Fat Whites own irreverent world view."

The band have also confirmed a series of record shop in-store appearances for late April to coincide with the new album's release. Find details of all of their upcoming shows here. Serfs Up! is out on April 19.
