Beth Jeans Houghton will release a brand new album this spring on Mute under the name Du Blonde. The new moniker announces a fresh start for Beth whose forthcoming album is a big change in musical direction – as evidenced by the short taster video below.
Her 2012 album Yours Truly, Cellophane Nose was a standalone piece of polymath pop, and a big favourite of Mrs M (who became an honorary hoof of destiny). However, 25-year-old Houghton has always been something of a musical chameleon always playing by her own rules so it probably no surprise that she has taken another sharp left turn away from the predictable.
We await the album with interest…
