Dragonette has been amping up anticipation in recent days for new single, “Let It Go,” out later this month, by tweeting photos from the set of their music video. But today brought the unexpected debut of a totally different tune from the Toronto synthpop band, a surprise release that fills the need for new Dragonette quite nicely in the meantime.
A collaboration with Felix Bloxsom (aka Plastic Plates), Dragonette’s “The Right Woman” appears on Proud to be Woman Vol. 3, a compilation put together by designer Diane von Furstenberg in celebration of International Women’s Day (March 8). Proceeds benefit Vital Voices, an organization dedicated to empowering women worldwide.
No surprise why Dragonette were invited to contribute. Listening to Martina Sorbara’s voice can empower women AND men to do all sorts of things. Hear here:
