La Roux have been covering the Rolling Stones’ classic ‘Under My Thumb‘ at their recent US gigs, and have now recorded a studio version for their forthcoming mix album ‘Sidetracked’.
‘Sidetracked‘ is an eclectic collection of non-La Roux tracks (except for ‘Under My Thumb’, obv) by artists such as Heaven 17, Joyce Sims, Fever Ray, Doris Troy, Tears For Fears and Gerry Rafferty.
Here’s what frontwoman Ellie Jackson has to say about the album:
“Me and Ben [Langmaid] enjoyed putting this mix together. It’s a really nice snapshot of both our musical influences. A lot of the tracks on here are songs we listened to while making our album set alongside some new stuff we’re into…”
‘Sidetracked’ is out now.
