Katie Melua Reveals 'To Kill You With A Kiss' Artwork, Single Due November 29th
Katie Melua is BACK on track, promoting her AMAZING fourth studio album The House and releasing a third single, "To Kill You With A Kiss." Now...I'm not 100% sure what this song is. There isn't a song on the official tracklisting called "To Kill You With A Kiss." Now, there is a Guy Chambers/Katie Melua penned track called "I'd Love To Kill You" which features the lyric "I'd love to kill you with a kiss." If THAT's the song we're talking about then YES. I'm excited. It calls to mind a lot of the Mike Batt-produced material from her previous three records in that it's a bit dreamy. Seeing that it's a William Orbit production, the song is one of the least William Orbit-sounding productions on the album and I don't think that's a bad thing at all. It's got a haunting melody and beautiful lyrics. It's really a quintessential Katie Melua piece and a great one to come back with, seeing that her last single came out in July. Whatever the case may be with the song title, I'm just happy to see Katie back with a new single. Not only has she been absent from the airwaves, Melua had to postpone her tour due to exhaustion. Poor thing! She's since rescheduled her European tour dates, which you can find on her official site. Hopefully some U.S. dates are in the works as well, as I'd LOVE to see her again.
"I'd Love To Kill You" was produced by William Orbit like the rest of her album and is one of my favorite Katie Melua albums to date. The new single is due out November 29th via Dramatico. I would assume that we'll get some remixes, as we did with "The Flood" and "A Happy Place." Check out the fantastic cover art above. Katie looks ABSOLUTELY gorgeous.
