Scissor Sisters have just returned with their new single ‘Only The Horses’ released on the 18th of May 2012. The New York band will release their fourth studio album release ‘Magic Hour’ on May 25th 2012.
“It’s a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop,” says Jake Shears speaking about ‘Magic Hour’. “It style-hops all over the place unabashedly.”
For the new album, The Scissor Sisters have been working a diverse list of new collaborators, such as Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams, Diplo, Alex Rihda [BoysNoize] and Azealia Banks.
This new Scissor Sisters album was recorded over a year in New York and London. ‘Only The Horses’ was co-produced with Calvin Harris. The Scissor Sisters‘ relationship with Calvin started when Jake Shears was working with him on material for Kylie Minogue’s Aphrodite album. “When we wrote ‘Horses’, I immediately knew that he’d help knock it out of the park,” says Jake.
Since their debut release in 2004 Scissor Sisters have sold over 4.5 million albums in the UK. The albums ‘Scissor Sisters’ and ‘Ta-Dah’ both hit #1 whilst ‘Night Work’ reached #2.
