Scissor Sisters’ flamboyant frontman Jake Shears has released his first song as a solo artist. Out today, “Creep City” isn’t a big departure from the Sisters sound we’re familiar with, but adds a swampy, Southern feel -- likely inspired by his move to New Orleans in 2015.
Shears sent fans an email to notify them of the new track. “I’ve not put out much out the last five years -- musically that is -- other than a collaboration here or there," he explained in the note. “There was a moment in time, that I really wasn't interested in making a solo record. I found the notion a little cheesy. But I was talking with a friend one day and he said: 'There's no issue with you making a solo record-- as long as it's fantastic. I took that to heart.”
