Crookers' new single Hummus is the lead single taken from their second album Dr. Gonzo, released through Southern Fried Records. Dr. Gonzo is due to be released on November 21st 2011.
The animated video for Hummus takes place in a 'Gentlemen's Hummus Club', where Crookers are performing, alongside a special guest: a pink hawk. As the men inside the club enjoy eating sticks of carrots and celery dipped in hummus, the hawk has a sudden craving for hummus, alarming the punters and driving them to leave the club in complete chaos.
Italia duo Crookers are Phra and Bot, who met in 2003 and bonded over a love of house and hip hop music from the UK and the US. Their debut album, Tons of Friends, was released in March 2010 and features guest collaborations from the likes of Kid Cudi, Kelis and will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas. Their remix of Kid Cudi's debut single Day N Nite peaked at number 2 in the UK charts.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
