It’s been just over a year now since 2008 X Factor winner Alexandra Burke released her last single (“The Silence”) and now–the silence has been broken! (Oh my God, I hate myself. Sorry. Keep reading.)
As previously announced back in early December, “Elephant”–Burke’s amazingly titled new single produced by the legendary Erick Morillo–will be released on February 26.
Last night however, BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong premiered a brand new remix of the track on his show, produced by Romero & Nunez. And from what I’m hearing so far, it sounds absolutely (pardon the pun)… HUGE.
Although it’s only a tease of the track, “Elephant” certainly sounds like a BANGER. “There’s an elephant standing in the room/Although we’re all alone, it’s not just me and you,” Burke croons. (Whether or not her voice is as heavily Auto-Tuned in the original version of the song remains to be seen/heard.) “And it’s crushing me, there’s no room to breathe,” Burke powerfully belts out as the tension steadily builds to an explosive beat breakdown.
Oof! Sounds like an incredibly awkward situation for Alexandra. She really ought to be taking some advice from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills glamazon, Camille Grammar: We don’t say that, but NOW we said it.
According to Hackford PR, Alexandra will premiere the song next Thursday at the Tickled Pink concert, where The Saturdays and Little Mix are also scheduled to perform.
Can’t wait to hear the full track!
