Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears will be your new, singular sensation!!! It’s been about six years since Shears took a hiatus from the super queer pop/rock/dance group; which had tons of dance floor hits, including the Grammy-nominated and chart-topping disco version of Comfortably Numb, Shady Love…and the MAMMOTH gay anthem Let’s Have a Kiki. Now, baby gurrrl is back…with a self-titled debut solo album coming out August 10th! Check out the vid below for first single Creep City, download it HERE, and pre-order Jake Shears HERE!!!
“I created the record that I wanted to hear, that I felt had been missing from my life. It took time, was handcrafted and is something that no one else could have made. These songs were cooked low and slow in the South, in Kentucky and New Orleans, with humor, heartbreak and horns. If it sounds expensive, that’s because it was. This is the sound of actual human beings, playing real instruments onto tape. It took two years to make and for months I slept in the studio, behind the old upright piano. Whenever I had any self-doubt, I reminded myself— this is exactly how all of my favorite records were made, with fingerprints, sweat and honesty. It’s a record about finding yourself, again.”
