Azari & III (a.k.a. Toronto’s hottest gay-straight alliance) are garnering much-deserved year end accolades for their self-titled debut LP. Going into 2012, the band is gearing up for the album’s global release via Island Records on Jan. 22, which will be preceded by the single “Reckless (With Your Love).” In addition to a radio edit by Paul ‘Rolling In The Deep’ Epworth and remixes by Riva Starr, Tiga and Julio Bashmore, the song has a brand new music video. Calling it now: head wrap comeback in 2012?
Azari & III will play a few more shows in Europe this month before heading to Australia in March. Tour dates after the jump.
