Gossip to Release "A Joyful Noise" on May 22 - Hear "Perfect World" Now

Gossip will release their fifth album A Joyful Noise on May 22.
The album's first single, "Perfect World," dropped this week.
A blend of soul, gospel, rock, funk, disco, punk, passion and rebellion, Gossip is comprised of vocalist Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan Howdeshell, and drummer Hannah Blilie. Originally formed in Olympia, Washington in 1999, Gossip first garnered attention in the UK with the release of their 2006 breakthrough album Standing in the Way of Control, and they have been in the spotlight ever since.
Their most recent album, 2009’s Music for Men, sold over 1 million copies globally and was raved about on both sides of the Atlantic. Gossip's frontwoman, the irresistibly bold and challenging Beth Ditto, whose new makeup collaboration with MAC Cosmetics will launch this summer, makes it impossible to not fall for the band.
Ditto proclaimed, "I spent the whole year listening to ABBA and not listening to the radio," accounting for the pulsing energy of A Joyful Noise. The album's infectious tracks will certainly be welcomed by fans who are already entranced by Gossip's insanely danceable beats, and will no doubt lure in many more.
