Miami synth-pop band ANR (formerly Awesome New Republic) released a new video this weekend, a cover of Kelis's 2003 hit, "Millionaire."
While Brian Robertson and Michael-John Hancock aren't joined by Outcast's Andre 3000 as in the original track, their slowed-down version gives the catchy lyrics some gravitas: "I woke up early this morning/But I still ain't see the sun."
ANR just finished a fall tour across the States and if this TwitVideo is for real, they're recording an operatic version of 2 Live Crew's "Pop That Coochie." Let's hope it makes it into the Borscht film, "Life and Freaky Times of Uncle Luke," when it screens at Sundance this January.
