OOH! The Return Of Del Marquis

Back in 2009, before the last two Scissor Sisters LPs, I interviewed Del Marquis about his solo work, a diverse collection of songs starting at pop and pointing all over the stylistic map. And now he's back!  Idolator launched Del's Princely new track Say Ooh Damn today, recorded with new artist Xavier Smith and Prince's (sometimes) live band, The New Power Generation. Meanwhile, Kick Kick Snare debuted the rubbery Let Me Tickle Your Fancy. Fans of Scissters will dig the fact that these songs are similar in vibe to his "mother band's" grittier disco funk sounds.

No, that's not the cover image for the new mixtape above. I just thought it was a nice way to warm up on a cold winter's day. You can follow Del and Xavier on Twitter to keep up with the new tunes. And follow me too, right?

Holy smoke! He is delicious.

Emm, what were you saying?

The whole EP is just SO professional sounding this time, they really do need an official push and eventual full length. Wish Del got more lead vocals in his other band too! (Sorry Jake)

I do like Del's vocals - not sure how much of this project he actually sings?
