Jake Shears in a recent interview with Q Magazine revealed news of a new Scissor Sisters album and a release date! March 2010 is when all the spandex, sparkle and mayhem will erupt. Get ready for a scandalous, sassy, sexy album. Shears had this to say about the
hallucinations inspiration behind the new record:
“It all began happening when I moved to Berlin for three months. I thought, I need to go out, take a bunch of drugs and have fun. I fell in love with dance music again and stayed out until the sun came up going to these insane sex parties. I’ve seen some things in my time, but i saw stuff there that made my jaw fall to the ground.”
Well, now that you have our attention, I can only imagine what this will sound like compared to their first album, which we all know was eccentric to begin with. Shears offered a little bit more insight in his interview with Q:
“I hear them and think, there’s no other band that could get away with this stuff. It’s a pretty dirty record even by our standards. At the same time I can’t wait to hear someone’s grandmother singing along to it. Now that’s subversion.”
Can you wait? I can’t wait. Keep your eyes and ears pealed for updates–when I find out more info I will definitely post it. Can you say album artwork? Can’t wait to see what that’s going to look like!
