Just in time for summer, DJ Mag premiere’s the Lauren Flax Remix of Betty Black’s fiery new single ‘Come Back Lover.’ The buoyant house rework is just one of three mixes featured on Black’s forthcoming Come Back Lover (Remixes) collection. Released digitally June 3rd on Frau Pink Productions / KID Recordings, the potent set also includes re-rubs by Deantoni Parks (KUDU/Mars Volta/World’s End/John Cale) and burgeoning Dublin-based house music producer/remixer Stan Soze.
‘Come Back Lover,’ which was written, arranged, produced and performed by Black and co-producer/engineer Rudyard Lee Cullers (Yeah Yeah Yeahs/ Basement Jaxx/ Bright Eyes), is the first in a string of new singles to be issued in advance of the artist’s forthcoming full-length, Valley Low. Set for release in the fall, the fete follows the multi-talented singer/songwriter and musician’s string of acclaimed singles, remixes and EPs including ‘Bad Weather,’ ‘Am I Not Your Girl?’, ‘Fatality of Love,’ and the Bad Weather and Slow Dance EPs. The album promises to further explore Black’s dynamic sound that marries influences from psychedelic pop (think Phil Spector meets Jesus and Mary Chain), swampy garage rock, Southern gothic blues, spaghetti westerns and lush electronic landscapes with confident, dreamy and sensuous vocals, fragrant melodies and gripping barbed-wire tales about love, relationships, lust and longing into an intoxicating cocktail that’s equally inviting, compelling and cautionary.
Betty Black is the brainchild of multi-talented singer/songwriter, producer, musician and musical chameleon Sylvia Black (aka Sylvia Gordon) whose amassed a highly respectable body of work, serving as the lead vocalist for Brooklyn electronic dance-pop outfit KUDU and for her co-writing and collaborations with Black Eyed Peas, Moby, William Orbit, Télépopmusik, Kelis, The Noisettes, Spank Rock, Benny Benassi, The Knocks and RUN DMT.
Come Back Lover (Remixes) with mixes by Lauren Flax (CREEP), Deantoni Parks, and Stan Soze is available digitally June 3rd on Frau Pink / KID Recordings.
