!! OMG, a Q&A with Andrew Butler of Hercules and Love Affair !!

chestyandy.jpg

The world is a much more exciting place now that Hercules and Love Affair is back on the scene. After releasing an acclaimed self-titled debut album in 2008, our favorite dance act is on tour this summer to get club audiences hyped for their sophomore effort Blue Songs, due out in January 2011.

Best known for the dance classic “Blind” (Pitchfork’s #1 song of 2008), Hercules and Love Affair is the brainchild of songwriter/producer Andy Butler. While the band’s first album referenced a classic disco sound and featured the vocal stylings of DJ-turned-singer Kim Ann Foxman, beloved torch crooner Antony Hegarty and high-energy R&B vocalist Nomi Ruiz, this time around Butler has a new line-up of singers and is looking to dance music’s future, rather than it’s past, for inspiration. Blue Songs, he says, will feature the modern pop-house bangers we’ve come to expect from the band, but also softer, stranger compositions.

For the summer tour, he’s pared back the set-up to focus on a glammed-up club experience that feature Foxman alongside two new vocal personalities: Shaun Wright and Aerea Negrot.

Last week we rang up Butler at his home base in Denver to chat about the tour, the new album, his new label MR.INTL Records, remixing Madonna and Gaga and his fabulous new hair. Read the Q&A after the jump and check back tomorrow to see photos from Hercules and Love Affair’s Toronto show.
