Because it makes so much sense (why wouldn’t they?!), uber-feminist dirtstache band Le Tigre will be producing a track for human Barbie doll Paris Hilton’s upcoming debut album, as reported by MTVe. The album, due out on Paris’ own imprint, Heiress Records, will be distributed through Warner Bros. Rumor has it that the album will be called “Paris is Burning.” No release date has been set, but incidentally, Paris will be attending a totally hot launch party for her label thrown by PlayStation on July 2nd. More combinations that make perfect sense! I wonder, universe, if next we can see Bob Saget on Broadway or maybe Bright Eyes on Jay Leno performing “When the President Talks to God.” Oh wait, list of things that are totally happening.
Le Tigre’s list of recent collaborators reads like a pop culture who’s-who. Their most recent single, “TKO,” featured Missy Elliot, and Kathleen Hanna did a guest vocal on Green Day’s latest, American Idiot. And to think, not too long ago they were just your average electro pop band. See what a major label can make happen, folks? Le Tigre released The Island last fall on Universal Records. They’ll be too busy making music with famous people this summer to tour, but they will be appearing in your home non-stop for months to come via reruns of VH1 fundit programming. Be sure to catch “My Coolest Years: I Was a Closet Case.”
