Following on from the release of their highly-praised LP 'Small World' earlier this year, Metronomy have now announced their plans for a new deluxe edition of the record, arriving next month.
Dubbed 'Small World (Special Edition)', the new revamped release will include additional contributions from the likes of Porij, PPJ, Panic Shack, Nadeem Din Gibisi & Tony Njoku, Jessica Winter, Haich Ber Na, Bolis Pupul, and Sébastian Tellier, is being previewed by the new Katy J Pearson rendition of 'Love Factory', and is set to be released on the 29th November via Because Music.
Speaking about her work on the new collection, Katy J Pearson said, “I’ve been a huge fan of Metronomy for a long time. The records they made had a big influence on my music. I have fond memories of travelling up to Bristol to watch them play in when I was a teenager and the shows being so joyous. Brilliantly intelligent pop music. I met Joe after their show in Bristol and we got chatting. After this encounter I got asked to rework Love Factory for the special edition of their album Small World. I was so excited as ‘Love Factory’ is my favourite song from the new record. It’s so beautiful! So I was very flattered and honoured to have the chance to put my own spin on it. I wanted to strip it down to basics and make it a vulnerable duet. I’d been listening to a lot of Nancy Lee & Lee Hazelwood at the time so making it a pop duet felt really fun to do.”
