Ladytron reveal new single Mirage
Next single from 'Gravity The Seducer' available from September 12th
With their highly anticipated fifth studio album Gravity The Seducer set for release on September 12th, Ladytron herald its release with a new single Mirage.
Mirage follows the release of White Elephant and as band member Mira Aroyo explains “scenes that are set up in Mirage return and reflect in later track ‘Melting Ice”.
The UK-based quartet (Daniel Hunt, Reuben Wu, Helen Marnie and Mira Aroyo created Gravity The Seducer to operate like a book, with tracks acting as chapters that hold the album together. The new album was recorded in the Kent countryside with co-producer Barny Barnicott (Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Editors) at the helm. For Gravity The Seducer, the band wanted a grander sound, incorporating more baroque elements.
Says Hunt – “it is more of a jump than the last album was, more ethereal & melodic, a touch more abstract in places than we've gone before, baroque ‘n' roll. It was a pleasure to make, took us right through last summer. It's our best record in my opinion," he continues.
The release this spring of the quartet’s Best Of 00-10 cataloguing a musical career spanning more than ten years featured seminal tracks such as Playgirl, Seventeen and Destroy Everything You Touch and prompted exceptional reviews across the board. A sold out show at London’s Forum marked it’s release and Ladytron, who will tour the US this autumn, will return to the UK for shows in early 2012.
