New Music From Lady Gaga, Pink, Jessica 6 And More

 

 

“Marry The Night” (Weeknd Remix), Lady Gaga

Lady Gaga’s Born This Way: The Remix won’t be out for a couple of weeks, but we’ve already got a preview of the album, courtesy of Abel Tesfaye and Illangelo’s remix of  “Marry The Night.”

The track isn’t just some juiced-up club remix, either: The production duo have turned the high octane song into a sort of smoldering slow jam, striping it down to just vocals and piano toward the end. It’s got sex appeal in a way that, for all her spectacle, isn’t usually Gaga’s forte. If the original “Marry” was the frenetic, jubilant wedding reception, this remix is, like, the wedding night.

Wink-wink, nudge-nudge.

 

 

“Prisoner of Love”, Jessica 6

Fans of Hercules and Love Affair’s self-titled debut album—especially those of us who blasted “Blind” nonstop for most of 2008—should really get into “Prisoner of Love,” the new single from Brooklyn based trio Jessica 6. Nomi Ruiz and the gang teamed up with fellow Hercules alum Antony Hagerty on the track, which has the same sort of funky neo-disco feel as “Blind.” Bonus Gaga connection: Mother Monster’s favorite muse, Nicola Formichetti, styled the clip.

 

 

“Bridge of Light,” Pink

Also creeping its way onto the Web this week is “Bridge of Light,” Pink’s new song from the Happy Feet Two soundtrack. Now, pop star soundtrack appearances can be hit or miss, really. Sometimes you get a really great song, sometimes you get a throw away track or a lazy musical interpretation of whatever the dramatic arch of the movie is. And come on, what kind of emotional journey can dancing penguins voiced by Robin Williams honestly have taken Ms. Alecia Moore-Hart on?  Still, Pink seems to have mined the depths of her soul for “Bridge of Light.” And as cynical as I may sound, the lady’s voice sounds amazing as always.

By the way, does anyone else listen to this and immediately want to hear The Judds’ “Love Can Build a Bridge?”

No? Oh yeah, me neither.

      Prisoner of Love was was one of my summer favourites. I did not realize the connection with Hercules and Love Affair, though I shouldn’t be surprised as I often thought it sounded like them.

      Not a fan of Merry the Night. What happen to the good remix DJs like Dave Aude, Armin, Jason Nevins, Bimbo Jones or Jody den Broeder? :(
