After returning with the effortlessly smooth “Let Me Down Gently” earlier this month, Elly Jackson aka La Roux has premiered another brand-new track entitled “Uptight Downtown“! The track serves as the official lead single off her upcoming sophomore album Trouble in Paradise, which is scheduled for release on July 7 via Interscope and Polydor Records. Premiered on Zane Lowe‘s BBC Radio 1 show, “Uptight Downtown” is a fantastic pop gem packed with glorious synthesizers, some jittery electric guitar work, and a killer hook driven by Jackson‘s signature layered vocals. While buzz track “Let Me Down Gently” was great in its gradual moodiness, it didn’t really scream COMEBACK single. “Uptight Downtown” is the perfect marriage of La Roux‘s modern electro-pop with a ’70s disco flair, an obvious winner from the jump.
