Jake Shears regrets decisions made about his band’s latest album.
The Scissor Sisters singer admitted the success of their latest album ‘Night Work’ has been “a slow burn” – and they feel they shouldn’t have released ‘Fire With Fire’ as the first single.
The frontman said: “That’s the heartbreak about it – it’s something I always follow, always going with my instincts. Because, if you put something out when you’re following your instincts and it fails, it’s all on you. ‘Invisible Light’ should have been the first single.”
However, he still feels positive about the band’s relevance in the industry and maintains that their music is like that of no other group.
He said: “My goal with this band is to be our own unique special sound.
“I look at all my favourite bands, Daft Punk or Nine Inch Nails or Red Hot Chili Peppers, and you know, those bands are always going to be relevant because they’re their own creation. No one else is ever going to be Scissor Sisters.”
‘Night Work’ is out now.
