Despite the underwhelming chart reception to the record’s first official single Uptight Downtown and disappointing record sales, British singer La Roux continues to forge ahead with promotion for her second studio album Trouble In Paradise with Sexotheque looking like the prime contender to be served up as the LP’s next single.
Produced by singer Elly Jackson and Ian Sherwin, the track was posted on the official Soundcloud page for Interscope’s promotional division which often gives an early indicator as to which songs will be selected as the next US releases from their artists.
Taking its title from the name of a Montreal sex club, Sexotheque is one of the album’s stand out tracks and a fine single choice, with its peppy, groove-inducing beats effectively masking the sad tale of a woman who stays at home whilst her man finds solace in the company of other women.
Trouble In Paradise peaked at #6 on the UK album chart in June, selling just under 8,500 copies in its first week. In the States, it reached #20 on the Billboard 200. Jackson will hit the road in November for an eight date tour of the UK, the full details for which are listed at the foot of this post.
