It’s been a while since we heard from Beth Ditto and her Gossip – they’ve been quiet since 2009’s Music for Men – but they’re back with a brand new single, “Perfect World.”

In the spirit of the band’s best releases, they sound at alternate moments like a classic ‘60s psychadelic rock band and an electro-dance group. We’re especially digging that heavy piano sound and sweeping canned strings, that dance-floor-ready four-on-the-floor chug, and Ditto’s awesomely autotuned chorus melisma. The record’s called A Joyful Noise and it's out May 22. Check out the first single below:
