Jake Shears – Last Man Dancing
LP - orange vinyl - release: 02-06
ake Shears turns his lifelong love affair with club culture into his most ambitious pop music to date with his brand new album, ‘Last Man Dancing’. The album was brought to vivid life by Jake Shears and a close crew of collaborators, including head-turning features from Kylie Minogue, Jane Fonda, Iggy Pop, Amber Martin, and a pre-Renaissance turn from the iconic Big Freedia.
The album launches with the massive single ‘Too Much Music’, which – from its glam rock overture, dramatic strings and irresistible Nile Rodgers groove – announces itself immediately as a definitive Jake Shears anthem. ‘Last Man Dancing’ is a life affirming record for anyone who has felt lost – out of love, on a night out, or in the modern world – but kept moving anyway.
In a career that has spanned multi-million global album sales, Brits, Ivor Novellos, Grammy award nominations and arena tours, Jake Shears has helped shift the musical landscape as we now know it. Just last year, Scissor Sisters’ debut album was named the UK’s twelfth biggest-selling debut LP of all time: they forged a new pathway in pop culture, which has allowed a new generation of unapologetic, occasionally outrageous and brilliantly uncompromising pop stars to follow. In Jake’s own words, ‘Last Man Dancing’ is “a journey through the ultimate house party. The first half gives you those singalong moments that get everyone into it at the top of night. As the hours turn, you can go a little deeper and darker, more where the second half of the record goes. It’s inspired by all the over-the-top house parties I’ve thrown throughout my life. I was born to host, I love to DJ and my favourite hours of a party are from 4-6am. There’s nothing more luxurious than being as loud as you want in the early hours. Not everyone might make it to the end, but the last ones dancing are possibly rewarded with the most magical moments of the evening.”
