'Hey Hey My My Yo Yo' sees the dynamic Danish duo Junior (aka Jesper Mortensen) Senior (aka Jeppe Laursen) return in top, feel-good form, mashing-up their one of a kind Mamas & the Papas
sound with the manic, party energy that they're known for. The sweet sounding 60s pop, 70s funk and 80s hip-hop inspired album features such notable guest artists as Cindy Wilson and Kate Pierson of the B-52's
, Le Tigre, and legendary Motown girl group the Velvelettes, as well as Spooner Oldham, the Alabama born organist (and Neil Young
keyboardist) behind classics like 'When a Man Loves a Woman,' and 'Mustang Sally.' The album was produced by Junior, co-produced by Thomas Troelsen, and mixed by David Leonard in Nashville.
