Published Mar 30, 2012Toronto-based electro popsters Dragonette are gearing up to release their new single "Let It Go" on Tuesday (April 3), but you can hear the track as of right now.
Following their mega-hit collaboration with Martin Solveig, "Hello," the song comes as the band prepare to release their third as-yet-untitled album. Apparently, Dragonette were a bit daunted by the task of creating a new album's worth of material.
Frontwoman Martina Sobrara released a statement about what was going through the band's mind, which reads: "'How does this whole writing thing work again? Do we actually know how to do this part of our job? Are we ever going to write another song?', and so on.' But now somehow, miraculously we have a whole album's worth of songs that we all love and can't wait to unleash on stage and in stereo."
