For her new single “All Bets Are Off”, singer/songwriter Nerina Pallot once again teamed up with her husband/producer Andy Chatterley for a “We Are The Chatterleys” alternate mix. Having tried ’80s disco before, this time they paid tribute to the ’90s, which results in 3 minutes and 29 seconds of trip-hoppy loveliness.

In other news, Nerina recently re-released her last album under a new title “New Year Of The Wolf”. Unfortunately, it’s zodiacally incorrect as 2012’s supposed to be the year of the dragon, but we will overlook that for Nerina’s sake. The new edition includes a bonus assortment of her live covers over the years, including takes on Beyonce, David Bowie, Radiohead and more. Watch her wistfully sit on a white horse and sing as snow falls in an abandoned facility – just another day in an artist’s life, then – in the music video for the original “All Bets Are Off” below.
I am mad about Nerina Pallot’s “Put Your Hands Up”. Originally intended for Kylie, the song is now the lead single off Nerina’s forthcoming fourth album, “Year of the Wolf”. Her vocals sound effortless as ever, and even though I was not sure about Bernard Butler‘s Northern soul ****** at first, it’s now firmly lodged in my brain. Popjustice was right when they said it’s highly addictive. The music video, premiered yesterday, looks like it wasn’t shot on the sunniest day, but the whimsicality fits the track. I wasn’t fussed about her last album, to be honest, spare the fantastic recluse anthem “I Don’t Want To Go Out”. This time around, color me excited. Watch the video below, and get her take of Kylie’s “Better Than Today” after the jump.
