Scissor Sisters, “Only the Horses”
The Scissor Sisters new album, Magic Hour, doesn’t drop until May 28, but the video for the new single, “Only the Horses”—well, the lyric video, anyway—has already trotted onto the Internet. (It follows “Shady Love,” which leaked back in January with Azealia Banks doing guest vocals.) “Horses” sees SS front man Jake Shears teaming up on production duties with Calvin Harris, best known as the mastermind behind Rihanna’s “We Found Love.” “I’ve known Calvin for quite a while—we met originally making some music with Kylie for the Aphrodite,” Shears said on BBC Radio 1. With its synth-pop hooks and broad, almost vague lyrics, we can see the connection to both Kylie and RiRi.
