Noisettes announce the release of new album 'Contact'
The band's third album will be released on August 27
The band – who are now a duo – will put out the follow-up to 2009's 'Wild Young Hearts' on August 27.
Shingai Shoniwa and Dan Smith worked on the record in the United States with a host of songwriters, including Jean Baptise (will.i.am), as well as recording strings for the tracks 'Contact' and 'Star' at Abbey Road Studios in London. Speaking of the record, Shoniwa said:
We've been collaborating with some fantastic pop-smiths recently. We enjoyed tropical evenings in LA's infamous Westlake studios with will.i.am's songwriter Jean Baptise ('Winner', 'Never Enough'). Sometimes we'd drive off into the sunset after a session in our rental Mustang convertible and write a song or two by the highway-side with the top down, Californian style.
She added: "'Contact' for us, is like a film from beginning to end, musically, lyrically, emotionally. The album starts with a big thirty piece orchestra and ends with just Dan and I singing and just the cackling of the wood and the flames of the fire for accompaniment."
The track 'Final Call' features a guest appearance from vocalist Deborah Evans-Strickland, as featured on The Flying Lizards' 1979 single 'Money'.
The tracklisting for 'Contact' is:
'Transmission Will Start'
'I Want You Back'
'Let The Music Play'
'Nothing Is Lost'
