Alex Winston "Velvet Elvis" Video

Detroit born Alex Winston has announced news of her next release, Velvet Elvis; the title track will be released as part of an EP on September 19th through Island Records UK / HeavyRoc US

Having released a critically acclaimed mini album earlier this year, headlined a NME Awards Show, Alex is currently putting the finishing touches to her debut album – due January 2012 through Island Records. She has been working with producers Bjorn Ytlling (Lykke Li), The Knocks and the award winning Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine, Crystal Fighters).

Alex is also working on a 4-piece documentary with various film makers exploring some of the interesting oddities that have influenced her whilst making her album; including beauty pageants and fortune cookie writers.

Those who have seen Alex live can attest to the energy and power of her performance whilst the presence of her band and backing singers - known as The Sisterwives - gives them an almost cult-like quality.
