Elle Exxe, the stunning Scottish singer-songwriter, has just announced the release date for her upcoming debut album. Love Fuelled Hate will be released on the 9th of September this year. She has also revealed her striking new single ‘Lately’, released on May 6th. It’s the first single to be taken from the upcoming album. ‘Lately’ premiered with 1883 magazine who described the track as “infectious electro rock pop”.
The electro-clash starlet returns with a swaggering blast of kick-you-in-the-face pop rock. The pounding anti-ballad sees Elle Exxe proclaim, “this is not me, you stole my sanity,” in sultry Rihanna tones delivered with a Gaga flair.
1883 magazine’s statement about ‘Lately’ is the exact summary of the whole single. Not only that but it’s also energetic and empowering, we blame the pounding beat and rhythm of the song. It’s almost as empowering as “We Will Rock You” by Queen but Elle Exxe’s single is on a whole new level. This is one song that you can put in your “YOU CAN DO IT” playlist. Just listening to it will make you feel like you can conquer the world. The lyrics may slightly be tinged with darkness but that just adds to the vibe of the whole song. It’s all delivered by Elle’s powerful voice that just ties it all up perfectly.
Give a listen to Elle’s new single “Lately” on Soundcloud. It will officially be released on May 6th.
The singer’s debut album is set to be released during the third quarter of this year. Love Fuelled Hate explores the transition of love to hate. It is a journey through a gloriously twisted tale of flirtatious glamour and irresistible lust into the seedy depths of adulterous behaviour and its dramatic conclusion. The title of the record captures the whole theme and message that Elle wants to express. It’s also very powerful, strong and different.
The album is extravagant, vivacious and adventurous. It’s an invitation into the exuberantly animated land of Elle Exxe, which has already captured the hearts, minds and critical praise of The Guardian, Popjustice, The Quietus, Gay Times and many more.
Elle Exxe has been championed by BBC Introducing, Kiss FM and also flown high in Music Week and Amazing Radio charts. Now also making big strides across the Atlantic, she’s been played on over 100 radio stations in North American alone, achieving big CMJ distinctions and chart success.
She’s also proved herself a formidable force live. From intimate beginnings at 229, London, Elle Exxe has gone on to play sold out shows across the capital and her Scottish homeland, while topping 2015 with the biggest headline show of her career at London’s KOKO as part of Club NME.
With her ever-growing international appeal, Elle will be performing four shows at the taste making Canadian Music Week, Toronto before returning to the UK for The Great Escape Festival and Liverpool Sound City in May.
The release of Love Fuelled Hate will be followed by a self-directed short film, which is set to see Elle Exxe firmly establish herself as a creative powerhouse shaking up the face of pop.
