With the last studio album to come from the band in 2009, Gossip are back three years later with their latest full length offering, A Joyful Noise. The three piece band (consisting of singer Beth Ditto, guitarist Brace Paine and drummer Hannah Blilie) join forces again to bring fans the eclectic sounds that they have missed.
When asked about her influences on the album, lead singer Beth Ditto explained that she spent most of her time listening to the sounds of ABBA and was taken aback by what she has learnt from the band. “That’s the thing about Abba. There is zero rawness. That’s so incredible to me…” the singer told The Guardian. “I think I’m really infatuated with that right now because that’s not the music I usually listen to. It never caught my attention before.”
The album, which is set to be released on May 14th was produced by founder of Xenomania, Brian Higgins and you can listen to the album in full below.
A Joyful Noise is available to order now.
