Mercurial, chameleon-like singer (and onetime frontman of The Living Things) Lawrence Rothman is current finishing up his debut album and it features a lot of interesting guests. Many of them all show up on new single "Designer Babies," which is a duet with Kim Gordon but also features backing vocals by Angel Olsen, and contributions by Nick Zinner (Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs), Active Child, and Justin Meldal-Johnsen (M83, Beck). Like a lot of what Rothman does, this is in theatrical, melodramatic cabaret territory and you can stream it below.

Olsen also features on another Rothman song, "California Paranoia," and you can stream that below as well. Charli XCX, and Ariel Pink will be on other tracks on his album, details still TBA. He's got a few UK/EU dates with Warpaint's Jennylee. Those dates are listed below.

Kim Gordon's Glitterbust album is out today physically (but doesn't come out digitally until 3/18).
