DJ, producer & vocalist Colette has grown from an integral part of the Chicago underground into a breakout musical triple-threat releasing her most accomplished and fully realized artistic statement to date. When The Music’s Loud, set for release August 27th via her own Candy Talk Records, combines the tunefulness of classic pop songs with the thump of classic house of her hometown. The album ventures into new sonic territory for Colette, from intimate bedroom beats to stadium-shaking dance anthems: When the Music’s Loud is the sound of an artist at the peak of her powers.
We previously unveiled title track “When The Music’s Loud,” a sleazy electro slow burner. Today, Colette drops When The Music’s Loud album opener “Best Of Days.” Colette’s sleek vocals, oozing sex appeal, glide over its thumping bassline & pulsating rhythms. A perfect anthem for fearless, humid summer nights, the uplifting track immediately commands its listeners to move.
Check out the “Best Of Days” MP3 where it premiered with SPIN or HERE.
Inspired by 80’s futurism, the shades of Italo-disco, house and electronica found on When The Music’s Loud reveal an artist open to infinite possibilities. Colette’s enduring Chicago connection is most apparent within album cut “Hotwire”, which rides over the instrumental beat of acid house legend Adonis’ 1986 underground club classic, “No Way Back”.
Influenced by Kraftwerk, Africa Bambaataa and Romanthony, When The Music’s Loud displays both lounge and uptempo tracks showcasing Colette’s world-renowned vocal talent and musical range. For the first time without a major label, Colette is self-releasing her album through PledgeMusic.
Colette will kick off an international tour in support of the new record this summer. Be sure to catch her one-of-a-kind live show & stay tuned for more exciting news from Colette coming soon!
