Tracey Thorn - Dancefloor
With remixes from Ewan Pearson and a Powerdance Disco Remix.
Taken from the Top 20 Album 'Record' out now on Unmade Road / Caroline International
As ever the personal has often been political in Tracey Thorn’s work. “Nine feminist bangers,” Tracey Thorn jokes when asked to describe ‘Record’ which following rave reviews entered the album charts at number 15.
”I think I’ve always written songs which chronicle the milestones of a woman’s life.” Thorn says on the new album. “Different ages and stages, different realities, not often discussed in pop lyrics. If 2010’s Love and Its Opposite was my mid-life album - full of divorce and hormones - then ‘Record’ represents that sense of liberation that comes in the aftermath, from embarking on a whole new 'no fucks given' phase of life."
The album is driven along by Ewan Pearson’s unashamedly glittering electro-pop production, with drums and bass courtesy of Warpaint’s Stella and Jenny, with Corinne Bailey Rae and Shura also guesting. “I wanted it to be a record you’d listen to in the daytime,” Tracey says. “On your headphones or on the move. Not necessarily in the evening, or in your bedroom.”
Of the track ‘Dancefloor’ Thorn says, "It’s a song about yearning for the euphoria of the dancefloor, and a track which wears its love of the Pet Shop Boys on its sleeve."
