It has been a few years since the world has heard from the Belgian quintet Balthazar. The band stayed busy though, as the lineup was tweaked and musical interests changed for the members that remained. But now, as the band prepares the release of a new record, Fever, in early 2019, the group is sharing some new music, including 'Entertainment,' a charming slice of carefree pop.

One of the last songs written during the recording process for the new album, 'Entertainment' is a crackling track, complete with sterling harmonies, off-the-wall percussion and euphoric horns. Lead vocalist Jinte Deprez shares the mic with Maarten Devoldere as the instrumentation swirls, builds and crashes around them. The video, which captures a rollicking live performance, vividly captures this compelling energy. Everything feels loose and it sounds pretty damn good as a result.

You can check out Balthazar's video for 'Entertainment' above. The band's new record, Fever, is due out on Jan. 25, 2019 via Play It Again Sam. Take a peek at their upcoming European tour dates down below.
