After 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, 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.”
