Nicole Scherzinger announces new single Try With Me
For me, Killer Love was one of the albums of the year. Whatever people wanted to say about Nicole and her new role on the US X Factor, the sheer quality of all-out pop tracks on the record was unbeatable in terms of making you want to head straight out on the tiles and dance the night away.
In one swoop, Nicole had created her very own Club Banger Nation. Her ode to 'just a few more shots...' was so unadulterated in its love of free pleasure and goodtimes that it blasted away any vestiges of studied, wannabe tastemaking in favour of simple fun and bare-boned enjoyment.
It seems only right then that she should be allowed the indulgence of one of those lovely deluxe editions everyone seems to be bringing out these days, accompanied by new Nervo-penned single Try With Me. Considering the dance duo have previously provided tracks for the likes of Ke$ha and Kylie, the pop pedigree is set high. A demo of the track surfaced earlier this week, setting pop fans every chattering about just how good it all sounded.
In terms of Nicole's album, Try With Me falls closest in line with Enrique duet Heartbeat; it's driven by that same sultry, rhythmic pulse. There's that relentless, wave-like surging of synths, washing up against Nicole's powerhouse vocals. This is the kind of song that sounds from the out like a Number One hit, a fitting follow up to Don't Hold Your Breath.
Try With Me is released on the 30th October - the deluxe version of Killer Love also features new tracks Trust Me I Lie and Tomorrow Never Dies.
