"There's a new sensation...a fabulous creation"

Yay for new Scissor Sisters!! I've been waiting patiently for a long while, and now out of nowhere they come out with a cover of Roxy Music's Do The Strand. It's not for a new album (though it may appear on their upcoming 2009 release), but instead they recorded it for the War Child charity album, joining a ton of other artists covering old songs. The track hearkens back to their Comfortably Numb days, not only because it's a cover of a seventies classic, but also because it's completely disco oriented with loads of falsetto. Better yet, it's got one of those classic Ana Matronic spoken openers. On several occasions I've tried to give Roxy Music's albums a listen, only to be pretty bored by the music. Now after this cover and Kylie's version of Love Is The Drug a couple years back, I may have to revisit some of those old albums. It's the power of Scissor Sisters!
