RED LIPS BECAUSE MUSIC, OUT 2 DECEMBER Eurodisco seigneur gets down with heavy friends.
Marc Cerrone will be known forever for his 1977 dystopian disco classic Supernature. His first LP in seven years, made with guests including Nile Rodgers, Aloe Blacc and Mersey voice Chelcee Grimes, reaches for that same transporting dancefloor moment, but finds obstacles along the way. The club-calibrated neo-disco brings flavours of Thriller-era Michael Jackson, Heatwave and Daft Punk, with standouts including the Alexis Taylor-sung Steal Your Love and 2nd Chance, an Isaac Hayes-like symphony with beats from Tony Allen. But it must be said, things get headachey with the glitter ball box-ticking of Time Machine and some of singer’s Keisza’s high notes on Ain’t No Party. There’s no doubt they’re here to carouse, but beware the hangover. IAN HARRISON
