her impressive Beth Ditto EP from last year, she's going back to her Gossip brood and releasing their follow-up to 2009's highly enjoyable, Music For Men this May.
From the album title, A Joyful Noise, has already got high expectations stacked on it, not to mention it being fully produced by Brain Higgins of Xenomania, who is responsible for a bulk of some of my super pop favorites from Annie to Sophie Ellis-Bextor to Dannii Minogue, and oh yeah, Kylie Minogue---so disappoint this album shouldn't.
While not as show-stopping as '09's "Heavy Cross" (what a single that was), "Perfect World" packs some heat with a engaging and space-y intro and some nice bass licks. Plus how can you not get wrapped up in Beth's voice? Betrothed you will be.
