After an absence of several years, UK artist I Blame Coco returns as Eliot Sumner with a somber and catchy new song called, “Information.”
A few days ago I was hotly tipped by my good friend Camille from HardCandy of the impeding return of Coco, a mutual favorite of ours. I was tagged in the letter you see below posted on Sumner’s new Facebook page.
Although Coco has played small gigs here and there over the years (I saw her back in 2012 at Pianos in NYC) we haven’t heard any new material since her brilliant 2010 debut, The Constant.
This new track is such a welcome surprise; although her alias might have changed, we’re glad to hear that along with her captivating androgynous vocals, her distinctive 80s New-Wave and Synthpop sound has remain intact—it’s like she never left. The track was produced by Duncan Mills, who has worked with The Vaccines and Spector.
Take a listen and let us know your take on the new track?!
