CINDY WILSON OF THE B-52's SIGNS TO KILL ROCK STARS
July 26, 2017After 40 years as one-third of the creative core of the B-52s, Cindy Wilson steps out with her own solo album, Change. A collaboration between Wilson and friends and Athens musicians Ryan Monahan, Lemuel Hayes, and Suny Lyons, Change marks a significant departure from Wilson’s other band. With echoes of Air, Bjork, Tame Impala, and Gary Numan, the band refers to its infectious brand of new-wave electro-pop as “Turbo Chill”. Rather than shouting in a “rock voice,” on Change Wilson gets to experiment with more emotional, subtle vocalizations, crooning, and whispering over swirls of subtle psychedelia, Quincy Jones-era strings, and pulsing synths.
Change marks an important milestone for Cindy Wilson: her first solo effort during a 40-year career with the legendary B-52s! Wilson feels that this project allowed her to be free to experiment with genre and sound in a new way, and she wanted to include her fans in this process by launching an exclusive campaign with PledgeMusic. Here, Cindy’s many loyal fans will have access to things no one else can get... from exclusive signed colored vinyl LPs to having Cindy cook you dinner, or taking you on a personal tour of Athens, GA, Pledgers will be involved in a unique experience — a journey that the band will take with them!
