Beth Ditto – “Fire”

Beth Ditto is best known as the vocalist for Gossip (formerly The Gossip), a powerhouse trio from the dance-punk era of indie rock. She released a self-titled solo EP back in 2011 but is only now officially gearing up to unleash her debut full-length onto the world. According to the New Zealand iTunes store, her album will be titled Fake Sugar, features 12 tracks, and is out 6/16. Today Ditto shared the project’s lead single “Fire,” an audacious, groovy slow-burner built on a muted bassline and sold via firecracker guitars and an impeccable-as-ever vocal performance.
