Perfect World

Song: Perfect World
Artist: Gossip
Album: A Joyful Noise

Wow, Gossip are back!

The band is returning sometime this year with their fifth album, "A Joyful Noise."  "Perfect World" is the first track on the album (though it doesn't seem like the official first single) which the band recently released.  It's growing on me, but didn't hit me over the head like "Heavy Cross" did... but I'm ready.

The new album is being produced by Xenomania, an interesting choice for sure.  "Perfect World" doesn't seem to lean this way but it would seem given that production team this would be their big dance-pop moment. We'll see.

In mildly interesting trivia, I just read that "Heavy Cross" (which is now being used in that new Dior ad) sold 450,000 copies in Germany making it "most successful internationally produced single" of all time, spending a record 82 weeks in the hot 100.  Crazy right?

I'm excited about a new Gossip record as their last "Music for Men" was one of my favorites of 2010.  Check out "Perfect World" below, as well as the mind-blowing Fred Falke remix of "Heavy Cross."
