Listen: Jimmy Somerville’s New Disco Singles ‘Travesty’ & ‘Back To Me’

It’s eighties overlead here at Culture Fix as we have been covering new releases from Spandau Ballet, Taylor Dayne and now the great Jimmy Somerville. The former Bronski Beat and Communards lead-singer is back with two new singles – one of the US market and one for the UK.

The Scottish singer is returning to his more dance-centric roots with upcoming disco album Homage which hits stores next year. The singer said in a press release:

“I’ve finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I’d buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate-fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I’d be in heaven! The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound … I LOVE Disco!”

Somerville releases Travesty for the US (which you can hear below) and will be releasing UK single Back to Me on Friday which you can pre-order on iTunes.
