Earlier this week we screamed in delight when we found out that Beth Ditto was going solo and releasing an EP produced by Simian Mobile Disco. We’ve been treated to a 2 minute preview sampler (which you can listen to below) of the entire collection which is due for release in January.
Beth has shifted towards a more electro, minimal disco sound and it really works with her powerful voice. It’s could almost be mistaken for a Hercules & Love Affair collaboration. Hints of Roisin Murphy also shine through, but Beth sells it all on her own.
You may remember the first she collaborated with SMD on the epic Cruel Intentions from the album Temporary Pleasure! If you haven’t heard it yet, you simply must! – Camille
