Stereogum points to the new single by the B-52s Kate Pierson, “Mister Sister,” from her upcoming debut solo album Guitars and Microphones coming February 17th.
Guitars And Microphones was executive produced by Sia, who collaborated with Pierson on the songwriting. Tim Anderson produced the album, and the Strokes’ Nick Valensi plays on it.
Lead single “Mister Sister” is a trans anthem that updates Pierson’s signature sound with a modern sheen; given that so much current music hearkens back to the B-52s’ ’80s heyday, it’s interesting to see her style boomerang around like this.
Fred Armisen appears in the video, which was directed by Monica Coleman.
The track is available now on iTunes.
Matt Zarley, two-time OutMusic Award winner, stopped by The Randy Report to chat on his upcoming new project “Hopeful Romantic.”
Plus he chats on the realities of being an independent recording artist in the new millenium – music videos, remixes and more. Great interview.
This song is featured in a new movie I saw this week “A Few Best Men.”
I think this should be a re-recorded and made into a contemporary dance track today.
I’ve loved this song for a long time. Very ‘summer’ – very light and fun vocals.
If you don’t know The Coors, you should. Fun, terrific, pop music.
I’ve only added the music portion from youtube as the video makes NO sense. In sharing this I wanted to share the music and vocals. Click on the Youtube button to see the video. The band is in it, but again – makes no sense.
Hope you like!
