Scissor Sisters finish second album

Jake Shears reveals all to NME.COM

Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears has compared recording the New York outfit’s second album to giving birth to a baby.

The record ‘Ta-dah’, which also features a guest appearance from Elton John, is slated for release on September 18 and will be preceded by the band’s comeback single ‘I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’ on September 4.

“I’m completely excited. I feel like I’ve birthed a baby!” joked Shears. “That would be the closest thing, it was very weird and painful but I think my baby is really cute! The old rock cliché is very true, it’s harder doing a second album, but that’s why we took our time with it.

“I’m really glad we did. I think when a record comes out people remember it if it’s good, they don’t necessarily remember that it came out four months after it should have.”
