Published Feb 09, 2011Apart from the emphatic disco thump, Hercules and Love Affair's self-titled 2008 debut was anchored by the sultry, smoky vocals of Nomi Ruiz. Following the critical praise, however, the performer split from the group in 2009, while also pinching bassist Andrew Raposo and keyboardist Morgan Wiley from Andrew Butler's dance music troupe. The trio, who go by the name Jessica 6, are now ready to deliver their debut single.
As FACT reports, Jessica 6 will drop the physical version of their "White Horse" single via Peacefrog on April 18. But right now, you can download the song here. The disco pop number will be backed with "Pressed." The tracks will tease their upcoming full-length, See the Light, which is scheduled for a May release. The disc is allegedly influenced by "horror, sex and psychedelia."
While a tracklisting has yet to pop up for the album, it's been revealed that Antony and the Johnsons vocalist and former Hercules and Love Affair collaborator Antony Hegarty will guest on a cut called "Prisoner of Love."
