Nite Jewel signs to Secretly Canadian, releases new single
The perennial L.A. electro-funk project Nite Jewel just got a nice leg up from Bloomington, Ind. The outfit founded by singer-producer Ramona Gonzalez just signed to the Midwest's well-regarded indie Secretly Canadian for a forthcoming album set for early next year, after successful cuts for Mexican Summer, Italians Do It Better and Gloriette.
In the meantime, Nite Jewel is hawking a new seven-inch for the single "She's Always Watching You," released on the Yourstru.ly imprint Love Letters Ink, that comes with a host of extras like a handwritten thank-you letter. With Secretly Canadian, Gonzalez and company -- who have emerged as a pretty formidable live act in recent years -- will join the esteemed ranks of Antony & the Johnsons, Jens Lekman, Yeasayer and the enigmatic Swedish crew jj.
