Jimmy Somerville: Homage
Jimmy Somerville is set to drop new album Homage on March 10th in the U.S.
“Travesty”, written by Somerville and produced by John Winfield, is a taster of the album which - as the name and Somerville’s back catalog might suggest - pays homage to the disco era.
Somerville and Winfield say they worked hard to authentically recreate the original sound of the disco era.
On Hommage, Jimmy says:
“I've finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I'd buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate-fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I'd be in heaven! The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound ... I LOVE Disco!"
The 80s electro pop revival (mark four) shows no signs of letting up in 2015.
With breakout acts like Oh Wonder previously Wonder Wonder) and the ubiquitous CHVRCHES in 2014, first off the blocks this year is England-based duo Neutronic, a boy-girl duo with downtempo electronica tricks to spare, beautiful harmonies and a warm rush of instrumentation.
Have a listing to their brilliant debut track “Closer” which should by rights be huge.
