On March 25th 2012, Scarlette Fever releases the ‘Great Expectations’ EP on Starfisch Records, debuting a new, rawer sound, with fresh interpretations by Ash Howes (Texas) of live favourites ‘Hour of Sunshine,’ ‘Cheatin’ Man’ & ‘Good Day’.

“We’ve stripped them back and played around with some old school rock ‘n’ roll rawness,” says Scarlette. “It was a bunch of independent musicians recording it all live in one room – and just like my heroine Aretha, we did it in two days!”

Lead track ‘Hour Of Sunshine’ is here in two versions: the first is remixed by Cenzo Townshend (Snow Patrol) and this is complemented by an addictive new live mix produced by Steve Lironi (Bon Jovi): take your pick as either way it’s one helluva sing-along, inspired by Scarlette’s love of 90s anthems like ‘One Night In Heaven,’ and ‘What’s Up’. “Elated was quite a sad track and so this is the polar opposite – a simple feelgood song,” says Scarlette. “One that captures the feelings of falling in lust. My favourite line? “I’ve fallen right through you. I’m deep underwater.”

The EP features new versions of widescreen ballad ‘Good Day,’ and Motown-influenced ‘Cheatin’ Man’, (both co-written with Andy Wright - Imelda May). “They’re crowd pleasers,” says Scarlette. “And these new versions really pack a punch.”!/ScarletteFever
