The New Mastersounds shared a single, “Fast Man,” via Color Red. The digital track comes from the sessions for the band’s 2001 debut album, Keb Darge Presents: The New Mastersounds.

“Fast Man” is a cover, a rare funk track by The PC’s Ltd. The song has featured in the New Mastersound’s live sets even though it didn’t make it onto their debut 20 years ago.

NMS guitarist and Color Red founder Eddie Roberts detailed the track in a statement. Read his words below:

“Fast Man” was recorded as part of the first NMS album. However, it didn’t make it to the album that was originally released 20 years ago (2001). This was actually because shortly after recording it, we became embarrassed by the break with us shouting out “M.A.S.T.E.R. We’re The Mastersounds,” as we thought people would say ‘who the hell are they anyway?” 21 years later, it seems pretty funny that that’s what stopped it making the cut, so for the re-master and re-press of our first album we decided to include it, and also release it digitally as a single for the first time ever!
