Scissor Sisters frontman Jake Shears has said the group's upcoming fourth album will be a departure from 2010's Night Work.

In an interview with The West Australian, Shears described the album as “very different” from the group's previous ones.

“The last album was very cold and had lots off sex and dark moods, which is why I loved it,” Shears said. “This one has a real emotional quality, a real honesty and a romantic and loving feeling. It's summery and sunny and I think connects emotionally.”

“I really think people are going to fall in love with the music. I feel great about it. We're doing things we've never done before and taking turns which will put jaws on the floor. Be ready for some big surprises.”

Shears added that the new album will come out sometime in the next six months.

Until then, fans will have to make do with Night Work, which has been described as the band's gayest work.
