Aqua “Megalomania” Album Cover Art and Tracklisting

The wait is almost over for the almighty Aqua‘s return.

Everyone’s favourite 90’s Danish pop sensation is putting everything at stake here for a shot at relevance again. Y’all know things were probably best left as they were – fond memories of karaoke nights to ‘Barbie Girl’ and Safari-themed birthdays dancing to ‘Dr Jones’?

However, it would be amiss for the quartet to not at least give it a shot now in a pop climate so receptive to mixed groups with a dance/pop influence. Their comeback single ‘How R U Doin?’ was A-game material and it gave fans a shot of confidence in their ability to still sound fresh for today’s market.

The forthcoming third studio album Megalomania will hopefully recall the fun-loving melody driven pop they were known for, mixed with a tinge of darkness that made frontwoman Lene‘s solo album so appealing. They are grown memaw and pepaws now. They gotta act right.

Check on the official Megalomania album tracklisting:

1 – Playmate to Jesus
2 – Dirty Little Pop Song
3 – Kill Myself
4 – Like A Robot
5 – Viva Las Vegas
6 – No Party Patrol
7 – Come N’ Get It
8 – Sucker For A Superstar
9 – Be My Saviour Tonight
10 – How R U Doin?
11 – If The World Didn’t Suck (We Would All Fall Off)

The album release will be preceded by two new digital singles ‘Playmate to Jesus’ and ‘Like A Robot’ – both will come with accompanying music videos. Check out the respective cover arts:

Are we living for the surreal, photoshop central art direction here?

Based on the previews we’ve heard, ‘Like A Robot’ is an instant fave. Its fierce, petulant lyrics rendered over familiar Pitbull-style beats could not come any harder especially when Lene growls, “Everywhere I go guys say I’m so hot, so why do you still fuck me like a robot?”

Take a listen:


 
On the flip side, ‘Playmate to Jesus’ is a little mystifying – a lush orchestral ballad layered with electronic squelches and bleeps for good measure. Both were obviously despatched to display complementing light and shades of the forthcoming album. Do you dig?


 
Footnotes:

Aqua will release Megalomania on Danish iTunes on 3 October. Both new singles are already out digitally there.

    • There’s always the option of importing, I guess! I absolutely can’t wait to hear the rest of it :)

    • You have no idea how this frustrates me. I desperately wanna play that song on radio and there’s not a clean version in sight!
