New Neon Hitch Cut

New Neon Hitch Cut

UK singer-songwriter Neon Hitch has just unveiled a brand new cut from her forthcoming debut called ‘Silly Girl’. The pop princess’ newest track – which was produced by Switch and Benny Blanco (Ke$ha, Britney Spears) – is an electro-pop workout with a reggae flair, funky audio effects and rap-style vocals. Things are about to get dirty. Again.

“I’d just got off tour and I went in the studio with Switch,” Neon Hitch said about the slow-bubbling dubstep groove. “We partied all night and happened to lay a few melodies. A month later Switch got in the studio with Benny Blanco and played the demo. Benny loved the scratch demo so much that we didn’t really change the song at all.”

Back in 2007, Neon Hitch signed to The Streets’ indie label; The Beats Recordings and went on tour with Mike Skinner. Since then she has been busy putting the finishing touches to her debut album Beg Borrow & Steal due out later this year. According to some snippets we listened to, it’s going to be a mixture of jazz-inflected vocals kissing eclectic pop melodies and hip-hop beats. We can’t wait for the release…
