Slow Knights is Del Marquis from Scissor Sisters plus a cast of NYC-based musicians.

For this release - which is coming out through Bright Light Bright Light's label - Slow Knights is also Rod Thomas, who takes joint lead vocals alongside Bridget Barkan.

"It's a very human and emotional song about togetherness" is what Rod and Del have told us in an email, which is to say that as Christmas approaches they've gone for MAXIMUM PENSIVE on this rather glorious, 80s-inspired midtempobanger.

The song's out today; you can buy it on iTunes now. (There's also a really good Starcadian remix which you may like as much or even more than the proper version.)

Label: Self Raising
