Jake Shears Delivers New Solo Anthem ‘Do The Television’

Jake Shears continues his impeccable run of solo releases with the freshly dropped Do The Television. The track which began its life as a Scissor Sisters’ song for the album Night Work has been polished and tweaked into a solo track by the band’s former frontman. He shared the release on Instagram noting:

“Do The Television, out Friday! So stoked to finally put this song out, it’s been so many years in the making. With the help of @u_tern & @rylandblackinton, we turned what had once been a sketch from the Night Work era into the jam you hear now. The video, also out on Friday was made with incredibly meticulous care by @steviebe88 and @videodromedisco. I hope you love the song and video as much as I do. And may you learn “The Television” I hear it takes some practice.”

Do The Television is dramatic, eighties-flavoured gem with avant-garde flavoured lyricism. It follows Jake’s collaborations with Boys Noize All I Want and solo release Meltdown. This is written by Jake, Ana Matronic Babydaddy, and Vaughn Oliver – the latter producing also.
