Published Apr 09, 2009UK's hotly tipped electro pop princess Little Boots has started leaking the details of her debut full-length. So far, we know the record is called Hands, due out in the UK on June 8 through Atlantic, and that the single "New In Town" will precede the record May 25 digitally and on CD, and on seven-inch and twelve-inch.
Also, we've been given the heads-up that the space-age fantasy image above will serve as the album cover, which according to Little Boots (whose driver's licence reads Victoria Hesketh), was "inspired by old Italo covers like Patrick Cowley and Amanda Lear that have lots of space and fantasy themes that have run through my artwork from the start."
While speaking to NME, Hesketh added: "I think its there's a good mix of past and future in [the cover], which kind of reflects the album."
There's no sign of a domestic North American release yet for Hands, nor is there a confirmed tracklisting. However, for the "New In Town" single, the Little Boots camp has tapped several remixers to rework the track, including Franz Ferdinand's Alex Kapranos, the Golden Filter, A1 Bassline, the Death Set, Fred Falke, Semothy & Sheldrake and Bimbo Jones.
