Beth Ditto teams up with SMD for solo EP

The Gossip’s leading lady Beth Ditto will release a solo EP in January 2011, with the Simian Mobile Disco boys on knob twiddling duties [via This Is Fake DIY].

Ditto has already worked with messrs Shaw and Ford in the past, performing a memorable vocal turn on “Cruel Intentions”, which stood as possibly the best moment on SMD’s 2009 album Temporary Pleasures and was also on the receiving end of a superb Maurice Fulton remix.

The four track EP will be available in digital and vinyl formats, with the exact release date not yet known. Tracklisting to follow.
