Habibi – Do You Want Me Now

Habibi by Bailey Robb

Today, Habibi shares “Do You Want Me Now,” the latest single from their new album Dreamachine, which releases May 31 via Kill Rock Stars. A defiant, dancey punk anthem, the track channels Habibi’s rebellious spirit and nods to their garage rock roots, illustrating where they came from and how far they’ve journeyed.

“‘Do You Want Me Now’ is kind of a punk anthemic ode to finally knowing yourself,” explains lead singer Rahill Jamalifard. “When you finally can stop listening to the voices outside and put away all this expectation and pressure – like caring about what people think and just looking inward. ‘Do You Want Me’ evolves to ‘I actually don’t care if you do.’ No more time or patience for that, I’m old enough and wise enough now, and it’s a liberating feeling.”


Dreamachine was produced by Tyler Love and longtime collaborator Jay Heiselmann, and features MGMT multi-instrumentalist James Richardson. Later this summer, the band will hit the road in support of the new album, with stops in Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco and more.
