Derek Gruen, who is known worldwide as Del Marquis from Scissor Sisters, is reinventing himself once again for his debut solo album by using the moniker Slow Knights.
Slow Knights’ record is called “Cosmos” and will be released on March 26, 2013.
Guests appearing on the album will include members of Prince‘s former band the New Power Generation, Rod Thomas (Bright Light Bright Light), Xavier Smith, Chrissie Poland, Bridget Barkan and Mykal Kilgore. It was mixed by Howie Weinberg (Public Enemy, Aerosmith, The White Stripes) and produced by Derek Gruen.
If the tracks on Del’s recently released free mixtape “Tickle” are any indication of what’s to come, “Cosmos” is going to be a funky record that will keep you grooving until dawn.
If March 26, 2013 cannot come fast enough for you, never fear – until then, you can listen to a sample of “Cosmos” on Slow Knights’ Soundcloud page.
