SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- La Roux will make her eagerly-awaited return with the release of Trouble In Paradise set to hit July 8th via Cherrytree/Interscope Records. The new album features nine tracks written, co-produced (alongside Ian Sherwin) and largely played by multi-instrumentalist and vocalist Elly Jackson with two special guest features from Chilly Gonzales. "Trouble In Paradise" is the follow-up to La Roux's Grammy-winning eponymous debut, which sold over two million copies worldwide and saw over six million in single sales.

La Roux (Cherrytree/Interscope Records) blew up internationally, going platinum and gold in multiple countries. Stateside, multi-platinum hit single "Bulletproof" soared up the Billboard Hot 100 charts making its way to the Top Ten where it stayed for weeks. The debut release also garnered a GRAMMY for Best Electronic/Dance Album amongst other illustrious honors including nominations for a Mercury Prize, MTV Europe Award, MTV Woodie and two Brit Awards.  

Album opener "Uptight Downtown" is a perfect mix of the strong & sexy sound that defines this album, merging seamlessly with the La Roux we fell madly in love with.  The track is equal parts epic sing-along, racing heartbeats and dance-party, a definite summer anthem. "Sexotheque," inspired by the red-light district in Montreal, is shocking in the most beautifully tragic way. The track weaves an explosive soundscape that melds pulsing melodic beats with Elly's crystal clear vocals, all the while telling the lurid tale of a relationship ruined by a man who can't stay away from the strip club. Teaser track "Let Me Down Gently" (available immediately with album pre-order) is heart-on-sleeve and raw, laying out fears, truth and insecurity. "I hope it doesn't seem like I'm young, foolish and green. Let me in for a minute, you're not my life - but I want you in it." Sonically it builds from a haunting ethereal start to a stunning, intricately layered powerhouse.

"Trouble In Paradise" will be available for pre-order tomorrow.
