Remix Premiere: Jimmy Somerville – “Travesty (Robbie Leslie Re-Edit)”

Put on those dancing shoes because Jimmy Somerville has premiered a glorious eleven minute remix of his new single “Travesty” by famed New York Studio 54 & Saint DJ Robbie Leslie. The track is the first taste of the forthcoming album, Homage.

Speaking about the album, Jimmy says: “I’ve finally made the disco album I always wanted to and never thought could. If I was 15 again I’d buy it, sit on my bed, slowly open the gate-fold, slide out the vinyl, place it on the turntable then jump off the bed and imagine someone just passed me a tambourine…I’d be in heaven! The horns, the strings, the bass, the guitars, the drums, the backing vocals and the melody….the escape. So open your ears embrace the groove and pay homage to an all too easily derided sound … I LOVE Disco!”
