Scissor Sisters - Shady Love

Defiant, unexpected, reinvention. All words that are absolutely appropriate when describing the first single off the 4th album by the Scissor Sisters. Shady Love, produced by Boys Noize, seems to be a departure from the norm that has been the Sisters bread and butter but I think it's a progression of the sound. With dueling raps by Jake and guest rapper Krystal Pepsy (ne Azealia Banks), this track is an all out party from the get go. There are so many influences from electroclash to latin inspired lyrical content and style and it all seemlessly mashes up into a fusion that is totally Scissor Sisters. The track was released today on Radio One with no real defined American release date...thank the gods for a global music community thanks to the internet.  Take a listen and keep an open mind.  On my 3rd listen through I totally got where I needed to be with the song and I can't wait for the new album!
