Beth Ditto teamed up with Simian Mobile Disco to release a self-titled EP, available March 8th. The EP features the tracks “Do You Need Someone,” “Goodnight Good Morning,” “Open Heart Surgery” and “I Wrote The Book.” The new video for “I Wrote The Book” is out, and it’s three and a half minutes of vouge-ing fabulousness. Taking a page from Madonna’s book, the video is shot in black and white, and filled with svelte men in suits dancing in the background while Beth struts her stuff. Relaxing before a night out, Beth is shown taking a bath before transforming into a fabulous gold and black sequined dress.
Head of Deconstruction Records, Mike Pickering, says of the album:
“This record cements Beth back where she belongs – on the dancefloor. She is the Queen of Electro and a true disco diva. I can’t think of a better musical marriage than to Simian Mobile Disco and the songs speak for themselves – in volumes.”
