Track: The Dandy Warhols helpfully say ‘I’d Like To Help You With Your Problem’, with a little wild assistance from Slash, ahead of tour and album.

In anticipation of their new album ‘Rockmaker’ due out on 15 March 2024, and their April Australian/NZ tour, the inimitable The Dandy Warhols have just released a new single entitled ‘I’d Like To Help You With Your Problem’. It’s a wild and stormy blitzkrieg of a track that is delivers a heart stopping jolt with the addition of the legendary guitarist Slash adding a squall in the mix.

Courtney Taylor Taylor says of Slash’s signatory contribution:

The first time we heard it back in our studio we just stared at each other with our mouths open. What he played on the track is amazing. I’ve never heard him play quite like that, but what is so fascinating to me is that it is clearly him playing. As recognizable as a familiar human voice.

The track is itself a sonic defibrillator: a fuzzy, psychedelic turbine that blows your hair back. The delivery has all the hallmarks of the Dandies – louche and swaggering with a degree of insouciance, the lyrics casting a cynical glance at plastic corporate sycophancy and falsity:

We’d like to help you with your problem
All of our operators are currently assisting other callers
If this is an emergency, please hang up
Somebody will help you shortly
I’d like to help you with your problem
Yeah, I’d like to help you with your problem
I’d like to help you with your problem
Yeah, I’d like to help you with your problem

The accompanying video is a surreal and terrifying AI-enhanced production that is absolutely stunning:
