Beth Ditto - Fake Sugar
Fake Sugar is the debut album from the critically acclaimed vocalist Beth Ditto. The former lead singer of the Gossip, Ditto‰۪s first solo album encompasses 12 tracks of driving blues, malt-shop pop, swooning rock and countrified soul, including the single Fire. In addition to releasing six acclaimed albums with the Gossip, Ditto has recorded with such artists as Blondie, disco legend Cerrone and drumstep DJ Netsky, collaborated with Jean Paul Gaultier on her eponymous plus-sized luxury clothing line, modeled for Marc Jacobs and appeared in Tom Ford's Oscar-nominated film, Nocturnal Animals. In addition to album opener Fire, the 12-song LP also features a cut titled Go Baby Go that serves as a tribute to late Suicide singer Alan Vega. The singer's 2014 marriage to her longtime girlfriend also informed Fake Sugar's lyrics. "This is adulthood, baby," Ditto added. "You fought for marriage equality, now you gotta live in it."
