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.
