Gossip's Beth Ditto: 'Adele is beautiful'
"She gives me chills," says 'Perfect World' singer
Ditto, whose band Gossip release their fifth album 'A Joyful Of Noise' tomorrow (May 14), has come out praising the multi-million album selling singer, admitting that she is a big fan of her music and look, in an interview with Stylist.
She told the fashion magazine:
I love Adele so much and it's honestly not because we're both big. I love that she's a fucking singer and that she just so happens to be beautiful. It gives me chills to think about it.
'A Joyful Noise' will be the Gossip's first album since their 2009 effort 'Music For Men'. You can hear the first single from the record, 'Perfect World', by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
The album has been produced by Brian Higgins of pop production company Xenomania and Mark Ronson. Speaking about working with Ronson, Ditto told NME: "One of our most common bonds was that we both loved big voices, church voices. He loves country music, which is a big deal to me because, you know, in terms of things I love, country music is probably number one, then it's punk and hip-hop."
Gossip will be playing a one-off UK show this week, with the band set to headline London's XOYO venue on Tuesday (May 15). To check the availability of Gossip tickets and get all the latest listings, go to NME.COM/TICKETS now, or call 0871 230 1094.
