La Roux’s upcoming Trouble In Paradise is one of the best albums of the year, so when Elly Jackson made us a playlist of songs that helped inspire the writing on the project, we knew it would be good. The mix includes three songs from her album (“Let Me Down Gently,” “Uptight Downtown,” and “Tropical Chancer”) plus a handful of gems that influenced Elly. Check out the mix below, and get Trouble In Paradise on July 22. Listen to the whole album here, and pre-order here.
While you listen, see if you can guess which Trouble In Paradise tracks each song inspired.
