Former Distillers frontwoman Brody Dalle has premiered the first track from her upcoming debut solo album. Listen to 'Meet The Foetus / Oh The Joy' below.
The track is dark, grunge-influenced slice of classic-sounding rock produced by Alain Johannes (who has previously produced work for Arctic Monkeys, Mark Lanegan and Them Crooked Vultures) and features both Shirley Manson and Emily Kokal of Warpaint on backing vocals.
Despite the big-name guests, however, Dalle remains the start of the show, with understated vocal delivery taking centre stage over dark, QOTSA-esque riffs and climaxing with an epic, choral crescendo.
