The new single is taken from Aluna’s upcoming album which is in the works.
Dance pop luminary Aluna teams up with emerging producer TSHA for new single ‘Killing Me’, out 17th March on Mad Decent/Because Music.
‘Killing Me’ sees Aluna laying an infectious vocal over a four-to-the-floor groove that never lets up. TSHA lends her ingenious production skills for the track, serving a dose of early ‘00s nostalgia with a disco-infused house beat and chopped up vocal samples. An instant hit, the track has already been selected as Hottest Record of the Week by BBC Radio 1’s Danny Howard, and will feature on Aluna’s upcoming album scheduled for release later this year.
Commenting on the collaboration, Aluna says: “Having been a huge admirer of TSHA’s production I was so thrilled to get the opportunity to work together, but what came out surprised us both — it’s a catchy bop, but it’s still wonky and fresh with that distinctive originality that TSHA has us all in a choke hold. It took a while with us throwing the song back-and-forth and even in the trash at one point, but our joint obsession pulled us through and finally it’s ready to join the world!”
Speaking about the track TSHA explains: I’ve always been a big fan of Aluna! She is an incredible writer and has the most unique voice that’s instantly recognisable. She was at the top of my list of artists I wanted to work with so when the opportunity to write together came along I was really excited. It was fun to work with someone so pro at what they do. I also got to step out of my current sound which I love doing and make something a lot more housey!
Singer/songwriter Aluna Francis is one-half of the 2012-formed U.K. electronic duo AlunaGeorge and builds upon that act’s sound in a solo context to venture further into eclectic dance-pop territory. She debuted with 2020’s stylistically elastic Renaissance, with several standalone singles appearing in 2021 and 2022.
Hotly tipped by everyone from Annie Mac, Bonobo and Gorillaz to Billboard, NME, Crack, Mixmag and DJ Mag, London-based artist TSHA is rapidly emerging as one of the most exciting talents coming out of the UK. Her sunny, hook-heavy blend of progressive house, Afro-house, rave, and dance-pop has found its home at Ninja Tune, with her debut album Capricorn Sun arriving to acclaim last year.
Fresh and original but with a healthy dose of disco nostalgia, ‘Killing Me’ is a match made in heaven between two singular talents in Aluna and TSHA.
