Cory Wong & Dirty Loops – Turbo

TurboGrammy-nominated songwriter, producer, guitarist, and bandleader Cory Wong has teamed up with Stockholm, Sweden-based “twisted pop trio” Dirty Loops for a new collaborative album, Turbo. The album offers an reimagined take on iconic Michael Jackson smash hit, “Thriller”. “Thriller” appears as the penultimate track on Turbo, which also includes pre-release singles “Follow The Light” and “Ring of Saturn”.

Jonah Nilsson sets the tone right away with his uncanny, MJ-level falsetto, but the underlying music sounds less like the original 1982 hit and more like a Steely Dan outtake. Bolstered by the virtuosic bass work of Henrik Linder, the tactile drums of Aron Mellergardh, the rhythmic texture provided by Wong, and the vivid, complex instrumentation by a talented five-piece horn section, the Cory Wong/Dirty Loops version of “Thriller” puts a uniquely enthralling, genre-blending spin on an all-time classic.

This new album is available on all digital platforms.
