Former Hercules and Love Affair vocalist Kim Ann Foxman has struck out on her own with a solo EP on British label Needwant. Return It features two new dreamy house tracks written and produced by Kim Ann plus remixes by Steffi and Populette. Here’s what she had to say about the title track to Rolling Stone:
“‘Return It’ is about an experience of an unbalanced relationship, where I felt constantly let down and taken for granted. It’s simply about mutual respect, love, and honesty, which should be there in any relationship whether it may be with a friend or lover.”
Listen to excerpts from Return It below, stream the full EP and read an interview with Kim Ann over at Dazed Digital and cop a free download of “Return It” via Rolling Stone.

Return It is out on October 22 in vinyl and digital formats. Check out a list of Kim Ann Foxman’s upcoming DJ gigs after the jump!

!! OMG, ‘I did it on my own time’: Mika offers advice on coming out !!

mika-lovebox-festival-day-2-03-1.jpg

“It’s really important to say and to constantly repeat the fact that it’s OK to feel conflicted. It’s OK to acknowledge that pressure. And it’s OK to have some understanding that your fears are understandable and are actually quite normal. It is so important to figure a way out of that because that’s quite a negative state to be in. It’s one that I transitioned through, but I did it on my own time. Unfortunately I had to deal with the more public side of it, in which I was grilled about it for so many years. I think it’s first and foremost important to say it’s OK to be conflicted and it’s OK to be afraid but that’s not the way it has to be. And also I will say that I truly benefited from a tolerant environment.”

!! OMG, so dramatic: Bat For Lashes covers “We Found Love” !!

Bat For Lashes 1.jpg
If you thought all those crazy buzzsaw builds in Rihanna’s “We Found Love” were a little on the overwhelming side then perhaps you should have a listen to Bat For Lashes’ take on the track, recorded during a recent BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge session.
The English singer-songwriter-interpretive dancer managed to strip the hit pop single of all its pulverizing euphoria in favor of a brooding and stately sound that’s much more in line with the vibe of her excellent third album, The Haunted Man. Give it a whirl below:

The Haunted Man comes out on October 22 via Capitol.
