Listen to Icona Pop's take on "It's My Party (I'll Cry If I Want To)"

    icona pop my party

    I simply can’t hear Lesley Gore’s “It’s My Party (I’ll Cry If I Want To)” without thinking of that scene from Problem Child (and now I’ve aged myself). And I hate that movie and I hate that scene, because there’s nothing funny about a flat-out nasty little kid being a complete a-hole for no other reason than he’s a brat. So I want to say “thank you” to Icona Pop for meeting up with NY rapper Zebra Katz at this year’s SXSW and recording “My Party”.

    Icona Pop rework the chorus from the Gore classic, dicing it up a bit and making it a shout-along over collapsing drum machines and screeching synths. Now, hopefully, “You would cry to if it happened to you” will bring to mind this banger and not that obnoxious ginger kid. Check out the track below.

    In other Icona Pop news, the Swedish duo has revealed the tracklist for their This Is…  Icona Pop debut LP, out September 24th on Record Company Tent/Big Beat. Of course we all know “I Love It”, and we’ve already heard “All Night” and got a video for “Girlfriend”.
