Warpaint’s JennyLee has released the second instalment of her Singles Club series. ‘Tickles’ / ‘Heart Tax’ is out now on all streaming platforms and can be purchased as a limited edition 7” vinyl Virgin Music. The A-side, ‘Tickles’, was produced and mixed by Trentemøller. Take a listen below.
Of working with Trentemøller, JennyLee said in a statement: “I love, love, love collaborating with Trentemøller…he never ceases to amaze me! And more often than not, I usually like his version n of the song better!” Trentemøller added, “It’s always a huge pleasure working with Jenny. Producing and playing on this song was no exception. It’s nice to see it’s finally out now!”
Commenting on ‘Heart Tax’, JennyLee explained: “[‘Heart Tax’ is] a song about love and loss, and the struggle of dealing with that wild emotional rollercoaster. When your heart has had enough, but for some reason, you keep going back for more.”
The new single follows ‘Newtopia’ / ‘Clinique’, which came out in October. Later this month, JennyLee will be releasing the third and final single, ‘Stop Speaking’ / ‘In Awe Of’, the former of which features Depeche Modes’ Dave Gahan.
