Maya Jane Coles’ debut album, due next year, will feature her singing as well as producing.
As well as her own voice, the album will feature a guest appearance by ex-Hercules & Love Affair vocalist Kim Anne Foxman and electroclash Boadicea Miss Kittin. “Six or seven” tracks on the album feature vocalists.
“It’s been quite surreal working with someone I have so much respect for”, explains Coles in the interview. “I sent [Miss Kittin] the instrumental version of a track, and I couldn’t believe it when she came back with a vocal for it in 24 hours! We’ve reworked it and now we both sing on the track.”
