Last week we saw the lyric video (via DJ Paul V.‘s weekly PopBytes column) for the Scissor Sisters‘ shiny new single Only The Horses, now we have the visually stunning music video although I wish there was a drop more band and less horses. I’m overly crazy about this Calvin Harris produced track, it’s not bad at all but I just haven’t been listening to it as much as I should be, especially being a huge fan of the band for a number of years now. I would also have loved to heard Ana Matronic‘s vocals joining in on the track, but I sure do adore cutie frontman Jake Shears (here’s an interview I did with Jake back in 2006). I’m totally dying to hear more tracks from their forthcoming fourth studio release Magic Hour, due out in the UK on May 28th, details to come (hopefully!) on the US drop date, so stay tuned!
UPDATE: Magic Hour will be released in the US on May 29th on Casablanca Records.
Singer and songwriter Jake Shears describes Only The Horses as a quintessential party anthem. “I wrote it for one of my best friends,” he explains. “We had so many amazing adventures this past year travelling the world. It’s about being friends with someone you’re so happy to know.”
