After a five year break, the Scissor Sisters are back with a new track; Swerlk. A combo of twerk, twirl, werk, swerve and swirl. Scissor Sisters said,
“Swerlk is our way to honor the people and culture that allowed us to escape and be ourselves.“
Babydaddy told the Huffington Post,
“MNDR and I were talking about how we wouldn’t exist without the culture around the clubs and the bars and the kind of escapes they provided and complete support system for what we were both doing when we started our projects. So it was this sort of, ‘we’re not just supportive but also in debt to this culture.’”
Created as a tribute to mark the one year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub massacre in Orlando. All of the song’s proceeds will go directly toward the Contigo Fund — a group that emerged after the attack and is dedicated to supporting and empowering the LGBTQ and Latinx communities in Central Florida.
