Published May 08, 2009It feels like forever since we heard something new from Sally Shapiro. So it's only fitting that her return is a grand statement in the shape of something as hopefully titled as "Miracle." Keeping her finger on the Italo pulse, along with writers/producers Johan Agebjörn and Roger Gunnarsson, Sally demonstrates her French-speaking chops in the intro, before she begins her transformation into the gentle disco diva. Agebjörn's now trademark disco style arpeggiates underneath a storm cloud of rumbling thunder, which alongside the tense melody in the synths and Sally's warm, airy breath, providing some powerful and rather refreshing drama.
Just yesterday (May 7), Sally explained on her MySpace blog why this free download is the album version and not the edit, saying, "We're giving away a free mp3 but that's the five-minute album version, which will not be properly released until the album - sorry for the confusion this may cause but this is the way Pet Shop Boys did it with 'Being Boring' so it can't be wrong." How adorable is that?
"Miracle" is set for release on June 16 via Paper Bag Records (digitally) and Permanent Vacation, which is taking care of the twelve-inch, as well as foreign downloads. And then later this year comes the full-length, which Sally and Johan have fittingly titled My Guilty Pleasure.
