It's been about a year since Jenn Champion returned with Single Rider, her first LP under her new moniker (more on that here), but today she re-emerges with the synth-heavy summer jam "Turn Up The Radio." The song features French producer Victor le Masne of Housse de Racket. Listen below.

Champion pays tribute to her former band Carissa's Wierd this fall as she reunites with Mat Brooke to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut LP Ugly But Honest. She also has some solo shows scheduled for September.
