For someone who was a massive Gossip fan I was very excited to hear that Beth Ditto was releasing the next instalment to her solo project that she launched in 2011. “Fire” is the first official single from her debut album “Fake Sugar” which is out June 16 and sees her tackling a blues injected rock n roll sound. Honestly this retro-inhabited song is a bit bland and sees the ballsy singer showing no real personality which was always her signature. The track is very different to her initial solo EP and is a departure to the pop/rock sound Gossip cemented. However her vocals still have that bold raspiness that I missed hearing. I just wish this song wasn’t so bland because I really want to love it but I just don’t and I feel very underwhelmed. Sorry about it.
