Sharon Needles Delivers An Elegant Eurodisco Fantasy On New Track ‘Flamin’ Hot’, Reveals ‘Absolute Zero’ Album Tracklist

Sharon Needles floored us with the first taste of her new LP, Absolute Zero and its title track, a moody disco number. Sharon turns her sights to something more euphoric with Flamin’ Hot – a camp Hi-NRG disco stomper penned by Sharon, Ashley Gordon, Paul Coultrup and Tomas Costanza – the latter who also contributes the scintillating electronic production.

Sharon’s latest album Absolute Zero is due for a July 22nd release through PEG Records/Warner Music Group/ADA. The LP is due to feature Flamin’ Hot and Absolute Zero, signalling the album is set to have a high octane Europop/Eurodisco flavoured sound. On the new cut, Sharon showcases her impressive vocals against Costanza’s bouncing production and a joyous backing chorus which completes the disco sound. The lyrics pack a joyous sense of sexy camp with lines such as “I feel the temperature rising / I feel your body beside me / It’s freaky and I like it…” and “Ain’t goin’ up, we’re headed down / Yeah, it’s gettin’ hot in here / Fall for me, baby, pretty please / Oh, fire walk with me…”

Sharon draws inspiration from surprising snack for the new release, as she notes: “Some say disco is dead.  Researching disco, I have found that some of my favorite rock n roll bands had a hand in this disturbing funeral of my favorite soul, funk, disco, and R n B bands. “Flamin’ Hot” was written because I was hung over, and I saw my musicians eating flaming hot Cheetos.  I hate food but I love music.  I’m famously known for saying unsavory things, but I want to be more famous for making disco songs about savory snacks. Though many people may find a resemblance to Madonna’s Hung Up, it’s really based off of French icon Amanda Lear. She likes Blood and Honey, I like Blood/Honey.” Sharon accompanies the new track with a joyously disco centred video directed by Henry Moonrod.
