Former Dead Disco woman collaborates with Hot Chip man
Little Boots, Victoria Hesketh‘s solo project, has revealed the details of her debut album.
“It’s getting close now–the core of (the album) is done,” Hesketh told NME.COM. “I’m hoping it will be tied up by the end of fall and released in the UK next year.”
The Blackpool-born songstress has spent the past several days in Kurstin‘s home studio in the Hollywood Hills recording songs for her as-yet untitled LP.
“I always knew I wanted to work with Greg–he’s one of the best producers and writers in the world,” she said.
In addition to the already-released club hit ‘Stuck On Repeat’, song titles may include ‘Magical’, ‘Click’, ‘Skeleton Girl’, ‘Every Little Earthquake’ and ‘Mathematics’.
“I’ve got more than enough tracks for the album,” she said, adding that it will be a challenge to narrow them down for the final cut.
Hesketh has also been working with Joe Goddard from Hot Chip on some tracks. “He knows what I’m into — we’re both fans of really well-written pop songs,” she said. “We do most of it over email because he’s busy on tour. It’s very 21st century.”
Since a US release date for the album has not yet been determined, Little Boots is readying an EP for a Stateside release on IAMSOUND records to satiate the demand that has been created through blog and media buzz.
“People came down especially to see me,” she said of her DJ gig at Steve Aoki‘s club night at LAX the night before. “It shows the power of the internet.”
The EP will include a Fake Blood remix of ‘Stuck On Repeat’ and the track ‘Meddle’.
