More on The Regrettes:
The Regrettes shared their cover of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own.” Their version of the song was produced by Tim Pagnotta and Brian Phillips. Lydia Night of the band reveals to Nylon, “‘Dancing On My Own’ has always been a really special song to me. The euphoric, painful but powerful, crying-in-the-club type of beat is my favorite kind of song. I connect with it in a whole new and personal way now more than ever. Going through a breakup can feel like literal death (lol), but this song makes me feel like I’m not alone. I hope our version can provide the same feeling to all the breakup baddies out there!” The band also share: “We had so much fun dancing to ‘Dancing On My Own’ before walking out to play our set on tour. We wanted to keep that energy going and give it our own creative spin and to make sure that we did the song justice by keeping its special identity with a lil ‘Regroots flavaaaa’ as we like to say.” Listen to The Regrettes’ “Dancing On My Own” here, and watch the visualizer, created by the band’s own Genessa Gariano here.
The Regrettes recently released the deluxe edition of their celebrated third studio album, Further Joy, via Warner Records. Rolling Stone says the album “…captures the Regrettes’ effortless transformation from teenage punks into pop powerhouses” and
Consequence says the album is “halfway between Gwen Stefani’s modern pop era and No Doubt’s Rock Steady phase.” Further Joy Deluxe includes the three new songs, “Dummy”, “Shapeshifter”, and “Answer.” The band shared about the new, expanded edition: “We are SO excited about these three new songs that we recorded while creating Further Joy. Each one feels incredibly special to us and expands the world of further joy even deeper. We hope you love them as much as we do :’)” Further Joy Deluxe is available digitally here.
The band recently announced that they will support Yungblud on his headlining tour of North America in 2023. The band will perform in cities including Atlanta, New York, Toronto, and Nashville. Tickets for all dates are on sale now here.
With Further Joy, The Regrettes, consisting of singer and songwriter, Lydia Night, as well as Genessa Gariano (guitar), Brooke Dickson (bass) and Drew Thomsen (drums), have written a manual for living in these times, replete with highly personalized songs about things we’re all going through. Night shares, “that phrase, ‘further joy,’ summarized what it meant to be on the hamster wheel of constantly chasing happiness, but in turn, that’s what makes you unhappy. I was stuck in a loop of wanting to be better, wanting to be good, and therefore I couldn’t be here. I couldn’t be present.” The desire to break free of that cycle is what the band’s third album, Further Joy, is all about: a joyous and self-aware soundtrack for those interested in what Lydia refers to as “dancing the pain away.” The original version of Further Joy is available here in formats including digital/streaming, CD, and vinyl.
