Daddy Squad – new music with Dita Von Teese
The latest single for Daddy Squad is My Magic Number – it’s a total bop that features the vocals of burlesque icon, Dita Von Teese.
Andrew Armstrong is the man behind Daddy Squad – Armstrong was previously part of Monarchy.
Armstrong and Dita are long-standing creative collaborators. Dita features on the Monarchy track, Disintegration. Armstrong has also written music for Dita’s burlesque shows.
“It started as an instrumental, but straight away I could hear Dita’s voice on it, doing spoken word….” explains Armstrong, reflecting on the track. “I imagined it a mix of Grace Jones and Miss Kitten. The words and imagery just fell out. It’s surrealistic and colourful. Dita’s voice has the perfect purr for that. We organised a session in LA for her to record the vocals, while I sat in remotely on the session. It came together amazingly easily.”
With a single for Violet Chachki already under the belt, future collaborations on the horizon for Daddy Squad include Jake Shears, Corrine from France, and Tom Aspaull.
