EMA is going to release a new EP, ‘Outtakes From Exile’

Her album ‘Exile in the Outer Ring’ came out earlier this year.
EMA has plans to release a new EP early next year.

Due on 2nd February via City Slang, ‘Outtakes From Exile’ will coincide with a load of tour dates supporting Depeche Mode across Europe.

The new release will feature outtakes from her recent album ‘Exile In The Outer Ring’, and is preceded by teaser track ‘MopTops (Twist While The World Stops)’.

“I made this song two years ago with my friend Severiano Martinez who also worked on Amnesia Haze and Fire Water Air LSD” comments Erika M. Anderson, aka EMA.

“He does a lot of art stuff but is also edits video — my demo of this was much slower but he approached like an editor and chopped it all up and made it much faster. It was alchemy. The lyrics were improvised, I was thinking about the 50s and 60s living under the constant threat of nuclear war…

“People doing the twist in a red light nuclear fallout bomb blast, about the haircuts from then, “mop tops”. But now we have these two crazy world leaders with crazy hideous hair threatening to blow each other up!”
