Dita Von Teese Is Curating a Soundtrack for Valentine’s Day
It was a beautiful night in Houston. I was dressed in my best attire as was my friend and we hoped we could live up to this starlet’s glamour. We waited years for this moment — to see the spectacular Dita Von Teese perform in Houston’s House of Blues. One of the many responsible for the revival of burlesque, Miss Teese can capture an audience just with her looks and stares alone. From her seductive ways, it’s easy to get lost in her extravagant performances. A flaunt of her fans, an elaborate stage, it adds to the magic of burlesque and Dita Von Teese entertains like no other. Many years after seeing her, I am thrilled to hear that she is curating a special soundtrack for this upcoming Valentine’s Day as part of a collaboration with 12on12.
While you can pre-order this limited edition vinyl, you might ask yourself why? Aside from being one of burlesque’s most recognizable stars, the selection is top notch that includes memorable numbers as well as recently released electronic songs. It’s a true gem to have in a vinyl collector’s collection. As for the songs planned, the album will include three selections with Dita performing including her recent collaboration with electropop duo, Monarchy, as well as select songs from Norwegian electronic act Röyksopp. While Side A consists of sensual songs that will help you woo your lover, Side B shows a more electronic approach, so you may want to plan ahead for a unique strip tease.
