'Slash Dot Dash' doffs its' cap to The White Stripes...

FATBOY SLIM has announced details of his new single, out this autumn.

‘Slash Dot Dash’ will be the first cut from the dance star’s long-awaited fourth album ‘Palookaville’. It is released on September 13 via Skint, and will be the legendary dance label’s 100th single release.

Fatboy , real name Norman Cook, said of the tune: “‘Slash Dot Dash’ is a mix of old and new Slim. There is repetition but this time the track actually has live guitars! The plan was to throw in a bit of Justin Robertson and [/a]. The track is just a comment on this new language people seem to have – although I don’t even own a computer. Well, I do, the Atari in my studio, but no one ever sent me an email on that!”

‘Slash Dot Dash’, which gets its premiere on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show from 7pm tonight (July 29), comes backed across the formats with a [a] remix of album track ‘Jin Go Lo Ba’ alongside ‘Close To Home’ – Cook’s music featured on the current 02 advert.

‘Palookaville’ itself is released on October 4 and features guest appearances from Damon Albarn, Lateef from, Latryx, Bootsy Collins, DJ [a][/a] and upcoming Brighton singer Jonny Quality.
