As ever, the personal has often been political in TRACEY THORN's work. Across four decades, her songs and writing have offered up a clear-eyed woman’s view of the immediate world around her, from the acerbic teen love songs of her first early ’80s band MARINE GIRLS through sixteen years as one-half of articulate multimillion-selling duo EVERYTHING BUT THE GIRL, to her recent acclaimed memoirs and journalism. On Record, the synth-driven tracks arrive and leave with a punchy sub-three-minute directness. For all its no-fuss pop brevity, the album revolves around “Sister,” a dubby nine-minute Compass Point-style disco jam featuring an all-female crew as Tracey is backed by WARPAINT's rhythm section and joined by CORINNE BAILEY RAE on glorious backing vocals. The song was inspired by the 2017 Women’s March (Don’t mess with me / Don’t hurt my babies / I’ll come for you / You’ll find you’ve bitten off more than you can chew). Vinyl housed in gatefold jackets. Limited edition vinyl version pressed on red & black vinyl.
