Emmy the Great moved from her folkier beginnings into the pop realm with the S EP earlier this year, and that continues on “Dance w Me,” the first single from her upcoming album, Second Love. The album comes out March 11 via Bella Union. Listen to the new song below. The album was made with quite the list of collaborators. Via press release:
The roll call of talent enlisted to assist Emmy The Great’s new albums is as impressive as the vision itself. Produced by Dave McCracken (Oh Land/ Beyonce) & Ludwig Goransson (Haim/ Childish Gambino), and mixed by Neil Comber (MIA), the album features musicians from far and wide, including Tom Fleming (Wild Beasts), Leo Abrahams (Pulp/ Brian Eno), Simon Oscroft (MXTHER), Henry Kwapis, O Karmina, Du Blonde (aka Beth Jeans Houghton), Nick Trepka (Speech Debelle), Fyfe Dangerfield (Guillemots), Gabriel Bruce, and her brother Robin Moss, with writer and broadcaster Jon Ronson authoring the album’s liner notes.
Emmy the Great will support the album with a short US tour in February/March, which hits NYC on February 24 at Baby’s All Right. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (12/11) at 10 AM. All dates are listed below.
