Electro-pop artist La Roux unveiled her first new song in five years, “International Woman of Leisure,” along with a glitzy video that recalls Sixties spy flicks. The track will appear on La Roux’s upcoming album, Supervision, out February 7th, 2020.
“International Woman of Leisure” is a punchy pop track that finds La Roux showing off her agile falsetto on the verses before slipping into a cool croon on the kiss-off chorus as she sings, “I will not be living in this space again/I will not come knocking at your door/Because I’m an international woman of leisure/Oh, you want me to go on? It’s my pleasure.” Meanwhile, the clip for “International Woman of Leisure” boasts a delightfully retro look and finds La Roux playing the head of the “I.W.O.L.” agency.
