Peggy Gou Catches A Dancefloor-Ready “Lobster Telephone”

Today, artist, producer, DJ and cultural trailblazer Peggy Gou releases a new single “Lobster Telephone”. Taken from her long-awaited debut album I Hear You, “Lobster Telephone” is a perfect distillation of the kind of balmy, technicolour house music that Gou is globally renowned for, evoking career-defining earlier releases such as “Starry Night” and “It Makes You Forget (Itgehane)”. 

The song – Gou’s personal favourite from the album – is named after the Salvador Dali sculpture and sees her reciting a string of surreal lyrics in Korean to then admit, “I know you don’t understand this / But it doesn’t matter / It’s all the same / We’re all the same.”.

One of the most hotly-anticipated debut records in recent years, I Hear You will be released on 7th June 2024 via XL Recordings. The ten-track album is the culmination of years of work for the Korean-born artist, who’s uniquely revered as both an underground icon and global sensation, sticking by her own unwavering vision to become one of the most in-demand electronic music artists and DJs in the world. Featuring previous singles, the 2023 chart-topping global hit (It Goes Like) Nanana, her Lenny Kravitz collaboration I Believe in Love Again and the festival-sized anthem “1+1=11” with its accompanying Olafur Eliasson-directed music video, the LP sees Gou stepping into the next level of her artistry and boldly claiming her voice through the kaleidoscopic lens of ‘90s house music.

“I Hear You is more than just my debut album. It embodies countless hours of dedication in my journey to create something timeless, and is a testament to the power of listening, to ourselves and to each other.”

Meanwhile, 2024 has already seen Gou grace the covers of Billboard (US), Vogue Germany and L’Officiel Italia as she gears up for I Hear You’s release. It’s also set to be a huge year for her in the live arena. Having played to over a million people in 2023, 2024 sees a string of high-profile appearances at the likes of the Glastonbury, Coachella and Primavera festivals.
