After getting chopped as the Unicorn on The Masked Singer UK, former Scissor Sisters lead singer Jake Shears has returned to the disco with a funky brand new track entitled Meltdown.
Here’s what he told Rolling Stone about the song’s influence: “‘Meltdown’ is a little burnt pop confection with a sinister edge, kind of ‘Dysto Music.’ You could call it a turn, or even a re-turn. Also, it’s my tribute to Sylvester, whose vocal stylings have always been an influence and inspiration.”
He also talked about his 2018 solo debut, and what we should expect from his sophomore album: “That album was my dream of taking the theatrical rock facet of my musical style and tuning it into a fiercely personal concept record. Now, I’m ready to make some dance music again.”
No shade to Jake, who I am a fan of, but quite frankly I prefer disco Jake over his solo debut, which I was not a fan of.
