Exactly a year ago, La Roux
reemerged with a handful of new tracks
like “Sexotheque” that they’d been performing at live gigs, and we then caught Elly Jackson
and co. serving them up at Coachella
. However, after that initial flurry of excitement that a sophomore album was on the way, no news arrived. But now, just a few days after announcing a string of North American dates
, there’s word that, finally
, the British synth-poppers are ready to deliver Trouble In Paradise
, the follow-up to their 2009 debut.
The album is due July 7 (so, July 8 in the US), according to a tweet from Disco Naivete, which DIY corroborated by noting that the information came from a newsletter showing upcoming releases sent by the French branch of La Roux’s label, Polydor.
