Beth Ditto and her bandmates give their fans a first taste to their new studio album 'A Joyful Noise' that will come out in May.
Three years after releasing "Music for Men", Gossip are back with a brand new music. The band fronted by Beth Ditto drop a fresh single called "Perfect World" as their first official offering from upcoming studio album "A Joyful Noise".
The trio stay true to their "trademark brash and unapologetic nature - that is, as true as possible for a band that is constantly reinventing itself and pushing boundaries." Working with Brian Higgins (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud), they sought to create their own brand of pop. Ditto said, "I spent the whole year listening to ABBA and not listening to the radio."
The band are scheduled to release the album across the United States on May 22, and will kick off a summer European tour shortly afterwards. While waiting for the album release and the roadshow, they are heading to SXSW festival in Austin, Texas for a concert that will be live streamed this week on Thursday, March 15.
