The new album is the follow-up to 2010's "Night Work." The band came to prominence with self-titled debut in 2003. The album inlcuded a collection of chart-storming dance floor killer tunes, such as "Laura," "Mary," "Take Your Mama" and the outstanding Pink Floyd cover of "Comfortably Numb."
Their androgynous outfits and energetic live shows fitted with the burgoning Electroclash scene that was raging in the clubs at the time and helped the band to establish a starong fanbase early on. Mainstream success arrived soon after and with 3,300,000 sold albums the Scissor Sisters had truely arrived.
Riding high on the success of the debut and subsequent sold-out world tour, the New York-based band delivered "Ta-Dah" in 2006. "I don't Feel Like Dancing" was the album's big single and the track "Paul McCartney" off "Ta-Dah" occupied DJ sets at every clubnight.
Touring and recording commitments lead to various band members suffer exhaustion. In particular, lead singer Jake Shearer felt the pressure. Album number three was delayed several times and various versions were scarpped. Jake Shearer relocated briefly to Berlin to find inspiration and Germany's capital and its famous night life culture helped in realising "Night Work," the 2010 Scissor Sister album.
