Scissor Sisters new album and live dates

Scissor Sisters return with their new single ‘Only The Horses’ on 20th May. The New York band will release their fourth album ‘Magic Hour’ on 28th May through Polydor.

“It’s a sweet joyful mélange of beat-driven future-pop,” says Jake Shears of ‘Magic Hour’. “It style-hops all over the place unabashedly.”

For the new album, the band have been working a diverse list of new collaborators, such as Calvin Harris, Pharrell Williams, Diplo, Alex Rihda [BoysNoize] and Azealia Banks.

The album was recorded over the past year in New York and London. ‘Only The Horses’ was co-produced with Calvin Harris. The band’s relationship with Calvin started when Jake Shears was working with him on material for Kylie Minogue’s Aphrodite album. “When we wrote ‘Horses’, I immediately knew that he'd help knock it out of the park,” says Jake.

Since their debut release in 2004 Scissor Sisters have sold over 4.5 million albums in the UK. The albums ‘Scissor Sisters’ and ‘Ta-Dah’ both hit #1 whilst ‘Night Work’ reached #2.

Scissor Sisters will perform at Shepherds Bush Empire on 16th and 17th May. The London dates will go on sale on 16th March.
