Speaking about the album, the band's singer Jake Shears said of 'Magic Hour': "It's a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop. It style-hops all over the place unabashedly."

'Magic Hour' features collaborations with Pharrell Williams, Diplo, BoysNoize's Alex Rihda and Azealia Banks as well as Calvin Harris, who has co-produced 'Only The Horses' along with Shears.

Speaking about working with Harris on the track, Shears said: "When we wrote 'Only The Horses', I immediately knew that he'd help knock it out of the park."

Scissor Sisters have also announced two new UK live shows to promote 'Magic Hour'. The band will play two shows at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on May 16 and 17.
