Stream La Roux's 'Trouble In Paradise' In Its Entirety
    • TUESDAY, JULY 15, 2014

    • Posted by: John Robinson

    British synth pop songstress Elly Jackson, aka La Roux, received much acclaim after her 2009 hits "In For The Kill" and "Bulletproof" appeared on her eponymous debut album. And on July 21st the pop singer will finally return with her sophomore LP, Trouble In Paradise. We already sampled the album's singles "Let Me Down Gently" and "Uptight Downtown", which incorporate bouncy grooves, and "Tropical Chancer", whose synths are nestled delicately over the tones of metallic drums. And today, La Roux was kind enough to give us a preview of the entire nine-track piece on her official website ahead of the release.

    In Trouble In Paradise La Roux shines, even after the bitter breakup of bandmate Ben Langmaid, co-producer and co-writer of the first LP. For her latest LP, Jackson instead worked with producer Ian Sherwin, who helped her in delivering songs that give us more of what we are used to from La Roux but with more detailed instrumentation. We're provided with a clearer picture of the voice and vision behind La Roux. It still features deep and thoughtful songwriting despite Langmaid's departure, especially on "Let Me Down Gently" — "Left behind your perfect skin / There's a part of you that's free / And I know that there's a place for me."

    Listen to recent single, "Tropical Chancer":



    Trouble In Paradise will be out on July 21st via Cherrytree/Interscope Records. Pre-orders are available on iTunes.
