Jade Starling best known as one half of the late 80s duo Pretty Poison (#1 platinum hit "Catch Me I'm Falling" on Virgin Records) will be releasing her much anticipated new solo album “Captive” on January 14th 2014.
“Captive” will feature collaborations with Lee Dagger of the hugely successful English remix team Bimbo Jones (Lady GaGa, Kylie Minogue, Rihanna etc.), DJ Laszlo currently on a streak of number one Billboard Club hits including (Selina Gomez’s “Come & Get It, “Kelly Clarkson’s Dark Side and Justin Bieber / Nicki Minaj’s Beauty and A Beat) and French DJ/remixer Franck Dona(Universal France).
“Insomniak”, the first official single from “Captive” with mixes from Lee Dagger, DJ Scott Mann Dark Intensity, Bisbetic (Italy), Alex Preston (Australia) and the award winning Dj/Remixer/Producer Chris Cox was recently released and is making its way up the Billboard Club Chart..
The video for “Insomniak”, shot at the “High Hollow” mansion originally owned by CBS Broadcasting founder William S. Paley captures the brisk feel of the Lee Dagger track set against the ornate beauty of the house. The story unfolds as an antique board game is mysteriously delivered to Jade’s door. The game comes to life and follows her through another sleepless night eventually capturing & whisking her away. This club anthem is notable for its lush vocal verse and hypnotic buildup to a stellar instrumental hook.
“I first made contact with Lee Dagger after hiring Bimbo Jones to remix my “Dance Revolution” single. We hit it off well and decided to explore collaborating.
Within a short period of time Lee & I along with my long time writing partner Whey Cooler have written eight songs together so far” (“Only Love”, “Every lil Beat”, “Subliminal”, “Insomniak”, “Thinkin About U”, ‘Spontaneous”, “Place In The Sun” and “Awake”), all of which can be heard on “Captive”.
Similarly, DJ Laszlo has several collaborations making it onto “Captive” (“Better and Better”, “Love of A Lifetime”, and “Runaway Hearts”) The LP is rounded out by the Franck Dona collaboration “Everything in the World” and the Starling/ Cooler compositions “P.I.M.P.”, “Captive” and “Dance Revolution” also remixed by Bimbo Jones.
In August 2013, Jade scored a major coup by raising over $20,000 during a very successful Kickstarter campaign, the proceeds have been used to fund the promotion of the new “INSOMNIAK” single.
Jade will be performing at this year’s 6 ABC Dunkin Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade on Nov.28th. The parade will have a national audience which is expected to exceed 12,000,000 viewers.
Pretty Poison’s “Catch Me I'm Falling” celebrated its 25th anniversary during the Spring of 2013. Over the years, this platinum hit has been included in scores of movies, TV specials and CD compilations including the 80s cult classic “Hiding Out” starring Jon Cryer, “Kickin’ It Old Skool” starring Jamie Kennedy, Adam Sandler's "Don't Mess With The Zohan” and more recently on AMC’s Emmy Award winning series “Breaking Bad”. In addition “Catch Me I’m Falling” was recognized by VH-1 on its Top 100 OHWs of the 80s Countdown coming in at #47 for the entire decade.
