ABOUT THIS ITEM
Ever-evolving and perpetually defying convention, Gossip are back with their fifth studio album, A Joyful Noise, produced by pop genius Brian Higgins (Kylie Minogue, Pet Shop Boys, Girls Aloud). A blend of soul, gospel, rock, funk, disco, punk, passion and rebellion, Gossip is comprised of vocalist Beth Ditto, guitarist Nathan Howdeshell, and drummer Hannah Blilie. Originally formed in Olympia, Washington in 1999, Gossip first garnered attention with the release of their 2006 breakthrough album Standing In the Way of Control. Recorded in both Xenomania, Higgins’ studio in England, and KBC Studios in Portland, Oregon, A Joyful Noise stays true to Gossip’s trademark brash and unapologetic nature--that is, as true as possible for a band that is constantly reinventing itself and pushing boundaries. Working with Higgins, Gossip sought to create their own brand of pop.
