Remember those UK lovelies, The Pipettes? Those high-styled pop darlings, known for their polka dots and catchy choruses, are back with a highly-anticipated album, Earth Vs The Pipettes, on November 16th in the U.S., on Fortuna Pop!/Red Eye.

This new record, a follow up to their smashing debut, We Are The Pipettes, is being touted as “an exploration of what might happen if all the genres and styles that have set the dance floor going for the last fifty years were loaded onto a rocket and traveled into space. What would Marvin Gaye and Diana Ross veering into Philly Soul, mixed with the compositions of Larry Levan sound like if it were recorded on Mars? (Answers: ‘I Vibe You’; ‘I Always Planned To Stay’; and ‘Our Love Was Saved By Spacemen’).”

The success of the band’s first album brought them a top ten album in Japan and top ten radio positions throughout Europe, as well as two Top Forty hits in the UK and a Top Ten in the US billboard indies. They’d played the main stages at Reading and Glastonbury, brought a dose of sorely-needed fashionable Brit pop perfection to SXSW, and generally caused jaws to drop and smiles to form whenever they appeared. Since then, they’ve undergone some big lineup changes and started work on their new album with legendary Martin Rushent, (producer of The Go Go’s, Fleetwood Mac and, perhaps most famously, the Human League’s Dare).  Watch for upcoming U.S. live dates.
