Shakespears Sister “All The Queen’s Horses”

From the late 80s through the mid-90s, Shakespears Sister produced a string of top 40 hits in the UK. Their biggest impact in the US was from their 1992 single “Stay” which reached #4 on the Billboard charts. The duo went their separate ways in 1993 and although Siobhan Fahey continued recording under the Shakespears Sister name up until as late as 2012, Singles Party will mark the first time the duo has been reunited in more than a decade and a half.

“All The Queen’s Horses” is the latest single from Singles Party. With cinematic strings and guitar lifted directly out of a spaghetti western, the sound is much different than what most would expect if they were only familiar with “Stay.” For those paying attention, “All The Queen’s Horses” sounds like it could have come from 2012’s Cosmic Dancer sessions; it is pop with a country flare perfect for summertime beach trips.
