Listen: Scissor Sisters unveil new single
06 April 2012

Scissor Sisters, the band famous for the song Filthy/Gorgeous, unveiled their new single Only The Horses on BBC Radio 1 today.

Premiering on Fearne Cotton’s radio show at midday, the dance-pop song will be released one week earlier than planned on 13 May.

Produced by Calvin Harris, the single will precede the new album Magic Hour released on 28 May.

Speaking about the track, openly gay lead singer Jake Shears said: ‘When we wrote Only The Horses, I immediately knew that Calvin would help knock it out of the park.’

Describing the rest of the album, he added: ‘It's a sweet joyful melange of beat driven future-pop. It style hops all over the place unabashedly.’

The band – completed by Babydaddy, Del Marquis, Ana Matronic and Randy Real – has already previewed one song which will be included on the album, Shady Love.

Shady Love, which featured guest vocals from rapper Azealia Banks, was acclaimed by critics including magazine NME who called it ‘the first big hit of 2012’.

The group, who have collaborated with Elton John and Kylie Minogue, have won three BRIT awards and three GLAAD Media awards since they released their debut album in 2004.
