Annie – “I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me” (single)
January 12, 2009
“I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me” is the new, long overdue single from Norwegian singer/songwriter/DJ Annie, who last had an LP, Anniemal, way back when in 2005. Anniemal produced one of my favorite singles of our young century, “Chewing Gum,” and while “I Know UR Girlfriend Hates Me” hasn’t yet found a place in my pop loving heart equal to that song, it still has loads of the same sassy, spunky charm. It’s absurdly infectious electropop that’s unapologetically, even joyously rooted in the New Wave and disco music of the 80’s and early 90’s. Annie’s next album, due out this spring, is called Don’t Stop, and appropriately enough will reportedly include a spirited cover of Stacey Q.’s 80’s hit, “Two Of Hearts.” The LP’s gonna be good, I just know it.
