New Scissor Sisters Album and Tour Coming
Casablanca Records have set a May 29th release date for the new album, Magic Hour, which follows up 2010's Night Work.
The band will hit road on June 15th to promote the album with a North American tour which will kick off at the Las Vegas House of Blues.
The outing will include a show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles (6/16) and conclude with a two-night stand at Terminal 5 in the band's hometown of New York City on July 6 & 7
Recorded in New York and London, the album also finds Scissor Sisters teaming up with Calvin Harris, Stuart Price, Pharrell Williams, Diplo and Alex Rihda, the German electronic music producer and DJ behind BoysNoize.
"It was a pretty collaborative effort," says frontman Jake Shears. "It's really different from Night Work. That was almost a concept album. This one is a bit more of a grab-bag of music - it's closest to our first record in terms of variety, and that board-game aspect where you're not quite sure where you're going to land next."
"Only The Horses," which will be available at all digital retailers beginning May 15, was co-produced with Calvin Harris. The band's relationship with Harris started when 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.
