Gossip's new eye-catching video for 'Move in the Right Direction' finds Beth Ditto and her bandmates embracing their new pop side and dancing up a storm. The video was shot in black and white with frequent splashes of red thrown in. It's a color scheme that really pops off the screen — no wonder the White Stripes stuck with that formula for so long.
At 31, Beth Ditto has nearly done it all: posed nude on a U.K. magazine cover, opened designer fashion shows, gone triple gold in Germany, eaten squirrels, said Gaga was for 5-year-olds. The lead singer of Gossip has helped reframe the question of body and its image in popular culture, and she has been vocal in her support of the LGBT movement. It's been three years since 'Music for Men' was released. Will a landmark fifth album be among her accomplishments?
You never forget your first love, in romance as well as in art, and Gossip's Beth Ditto still remembers what it was like to experience the magic of music as a young kid -- something she guesses today's budding pop fanatics are doing with Lady Gaga, whose music she describes as "for 5-year-olds."
Spread the word! Gossip are back and have announced plans to release their fifth album, 'A Joyful Noise,' on May 22. The disc is preceded by the trio's upbeat and infectious new single, 'Perfect World,' which is streaming below. And as if to prove the saying that good things always come in three, they've also mapped out a European tour, although dates for that have yet to be announced.
