Siouxsie and the Banshees front woman, Siouxsie Sioux, has remained fairly inactive over the last 10 years aside from a handful of performances at Yoko Onos Meltdown Festival in 2013. Today she has broke from her silence and released the new song called “Love Crime”.
According to Consequence of Sound, Reitzell spoke to Entertainment Weekly saying, “Siouxsie hasn’t even stepped foot in a studio for eight years, and she said that this piece was the first thing that she heard that inspired her to do anything, and the good news is that I’m going to do a few more tracks with her. I’ve written a few more, and we’re not sure how we’re going to release the track, and that’s kind of unfortunate, but it will be out. We’ll get it out there somehow, soon”
Reitzell previously worked with Sioux on the 2006 film Marie Antoinette and discovered she’s an admirer of Hannibal. In an interview with TV Guide Reitzell said, “‘I know the show is canceled… and it’s absolutely unheard of for a showrunner to come back to you and ask for more money for a show that has no further revenue potential for you,'” Fuller told the networks. “‘But it’s Siouxsie Sioux and it’s an honor and it’s her first single in eight years.’ They both said, ‘Yes, absolutely, we’ll split it right down the middle, and we’re doing this because we love you, we love the show, and we love Siouxsie.'”
Sioux’s first, and currently only, solo LP Mantaray released in 2007. Since then the singer has not felt the urge to work on new music. Hopefully since she has come out of silence we will be hearing more of her.
