Modern soul outfit Durand Jones & the Indications shared the new single “The Way That I Do” and an accompanying video. The disco-tinged number appears on Private Space, which comes out via Dead Oceans / Colemine Records on July 30.

Durand Jones & The Indications previously unveiled Private Space tracks “Witchoo” and “Love Will Work It Out.” The quintet recorded the 10-track album after they were forced apart by the pandemic for the bulk of 2020.

Weird Life directed the visual for “The Way That I Do.” The video was filmed at Josephine’s Southern Cooking in Chicago and features Pete and Linda Frazier, who won the 2019 World’s Largest Steppers Contest in the Windy City. “My wife Linda and I are from Chicago, the Stepper’s capital of the world, and are members of the Majestic Gents Stepper’s organization,” explained Pete Frazier. “We were honored to be asked to participate in this video. As we say on the dance floor, ‘Steppers, let’s go to work!’”

“Whether on tour or spinning records, over the years we realized how much we love making people dance. When the first notes hit or the needle drops and the whole crowd lights up, that’s a feeling we held onto all through 2020. And that’s what we’re bringing on ‘The Way That I Do,'” added the band’s Aaron Frazer. “It’s a run-to-the-dancefloor song for that special person who gets you shook, makes you wanna do more and be your best self. But it’s also for everyone who’s missed just getting together and movin’ their ass!”
