The Gossip Have a Heavy Cross To Bear

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Mon, Apr 27, 2009 at 10:25 AM


The Gossip's Music For Men won't be out until June—oh wait, make that October for us Yanks—but it seems that the first single, "Heavy Cross," has made its way to the internets.

No hateration on our part, "Heavy Cross" pretty much kills it. Sounding exactly like what you'd expect from a slick big budget Gossip single, it has all the components—disco beats, sharp guitar lines, Beth Ditto's powerful set of pipes—to make it a hit. Enjoy it now, before we're told to take it town and go play with our dolls instead.

The Gossip - "Heavy Cross"

End Hits: Does anyone else think the opening guitar line sounds like something from the Chromatics?
