    London synth-pop songstress Elly Jackson, a.k.a. La Roux, returns with her sophomore album, Trouble in Paradise, on July 8th via Cherrytree/Interscope. Already we’ve heard the club-ready “Let Me Down Gently”; now Jackson’s revealed the LP’s first official single “Uptight Downtown”.

    An impressive marrying of modern electro-pop and ’70s disco flair, the song’s flush with strut-worthy funk and soul. Listen in below, followed by the single’s artwork.
