It's La Roux's "Let Me Down Gently" Video

A funny thing happened during this two-week jaunt to Italy that I'm on, which is that La Roux returned with brand new music and news of a new album, Trouble In Paradise. According to PopJustice, La Roux now consists of Elly Jackson alone, as "silent" partner Ben Langenmaid has apparently taken a hike...or maybe not? (The post has now been deleted.)

At any rate, "Let Me Down Gently" now has a music video. Not sure that this song is taking the world by the cock, exactly. Has it even charted anywhere since first premiering nearly two weeks ago?

No matter. Elly is the Tilda Swinton of pop, which means she'll be eternally cool, eternally androgynous and fuckable on at least 8 different levels.
