 05 JUNE 2017 (Toronto, ON) - Beth Ditto gives fans another taste of her upcoming debut solo album, Fake Sugar, with the release of new track, We Could Run.  Fans who pre-order the album, available June 16 via Virgin Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company, will instantly receive “We Could Run”, Oo La La” plus the first single, “Fire”.

Beth will tour the album extensively this year, kicking off in North America this month and including a Toronto date July 15, before heading to Europe from September onwards.  Full list of tour dates available at

“Beth Ditto is a force-of-nature performer best known for fronting the pop-punk group Gossip”, said NPR, which put “Fire” on its list of “10 Songs Public Radio Can’t Stop Playing”. Idolator hailed “Fire” as “one hell of song”, PAPER called it “perfect for the summer vibes we are all craving” and Noisey said, “It's Ditto at her bluesy, garage-y best”. View the official video for “Fire” HERE and check out the Disciples remix HERE.

Bust Magazine observed, “Fake Sugar is her debut album as a solo artist, but there’s nothing fake about it…She embraces Southern rock on ‘Fire’ and ‘Oo La La’…belts it out on ‘80s-inspired power ballads ‘Oh My God’ and ‘We Could Run’, and brings it home on the romantic ‘Love in Real Life’”. Stereogum noted, “‘Oo La La’ plays like an updated, processed, laser-focused version of an old-school blues-rock growler. It has a synthetic sheen all over it, but the way Ditto delivers the word ‘bonecrusher’ is about as nasty as it gets”. 

In addition to releasing six acclaimed albums with Gossip, Ditto has recorded with such artists as Blondie and disco legend Cerrone, collaborated with Jean Paul Gaultier on her eponymous plus-sized luxury clothing line, modeled for Marc Jacobs and appeared in Tom Ford's Oscar-nominated film, Nocturnal Animals.
