Former Gossip vocalist Beth Ditto has announced that she will release her debut solo album, ‘Fake Sugar’, on 16 Jun.

The record comes six whole years after her debut solo release, a Simian Mobile Disco-produced EP. While that saw her take a route into dance music, the album goes in an entirely different direction. Speaking about the inspiration for ‘Fake Sugar’, she says: “[Previously] I was running away from the bad parts of Southern culture [but] I’m old enough now and so grateful for my family that I can finally embrace the good in where I grew up”.

You can catch Ditto live at Omeara in London next week, on 11 Apr. Here’s first single, ‘Fire’:
