RAC’s Andre Allen Anjos premieres the new song, “One House ft. SPEAK,” from his monthly singles series with Entertainment Weekly. The site calls the song an “80s-tinged new tune” and says, “prepare to hear it again and again.”

Following sets at summer festivals including Coachella, Electric Zoo, Bumbershoot and North Coast Music, RAC (pronounced Ar-Ay-Cee) will kick off his “Going Our Own Way” North American headline tour with special guests Big Data, filous and more next week. See full list of dates below.

Anjos recently released the video for his song “Back of the Car” which features SNL’s Sasheer Zamata, Vogue contributor Karley Sciortino and was directed by Alex Karpovsky of “Girls” along with Teddy Banks.

The song, which Vulture calls “one of the project’s highlights,” features Nate Hendricks.

Born and raised in Portugal, Anjos studied piano and guitar in his teens and played in local bands. He moved to the U.S. to study music business at Greenville College in Illinois before settling in Portland, Oregon. Anjos founded RAC while in his college dorm and has since gained an audience creating remixes for Lana Del Rey, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Ellie Goulding, Foster the People, Phoenix, Imagine Dragons, Two Door Cinema Club, The Shins and Odesza, among many others.

RAC began releasing original content with their first song “Hollywood” via Green Label Sound in 2012. Anjos quickly proved himself as a songwriter with his debut album Strangers (2014), which contains the singles “Let Go,” featuring Bloc Party’s Kele & MNDR and “Cheap Sunglasses” featuring Matthew Koma.
