‘Velvet Elvis’ will be released as part of an EP on September 19th through Island Records and will include this King Charles remix as well as an RAC remix and new track ‘Fire Ant’. The 4 tracks are rich in the kind of eerie harmonies and propelling drum beats that are becoming synonymous with Alex Winston.

Having released a critically acclaimed mini album ‘Sister Wife’ earlier this year and headlined an NME Awards Show, Alex is putting the finishing touches to her debut album which is due for release in January 2012 through Island Records. She has been working with producers Bjorn Ytlling (Lykke Li), The Knocks and the award winning Charlie Hugall (Florence and the Machine, Crystal Fighters).
