The Gossip have released a new video for their single "Move in the Right Direction" from their latest album A Joyful Noise.
The video is a polished green-screened fiesta, showing that Ditto and her musical compatriots have moved on (but not completely away) from their early punk sound. It now makes sense that Ditto talked about her great love for ABBA, and it shows in this dancy ditty. It's no secret that I love Ditto, and I can't wait to find out what the next single/video is.

Last week The Gossip dropped their new single, "Perfect World," with a video detailing the lyrics.
Now, the actual video has been released and it's a visual love poem to Beth Ditto and her powers as a vocalist.
It seems like everyone is releasing "lyrics" videos for their singles. Cee-Lo Green used it to full effect a while back with "Fuck You." Now the Scissor Sisters have used this format to release their new single, produced by Calvin Harris and Alex Ridha, aka Boys Noize. It's a mix of glam, filter disco and synth silliness. Not a bad way to whet appetites for new Scissor Sisters material.

Yesterday, The Gossip released a new single, entitled "Perfect World."
Although some may argue that The Gossip have left their DIY-punk roots — especially with their last full-length album, released by a major label and produced by Rick Rubin — but that would be shortsighted. Beth Ditto and her Gossip compadres simply now have access to bigger and better things. They still play from their older catalogue in their shows, and Ditto's voice has probably never sounded better.
Personally, I am waiting for Ditto to officially release a cover of "Vogue."
In other music news, Peaches has recently put out a video for her collaboration with Telonius, entitled "Our Love." The video is like streaming video gone MOMA.
