Shine 2009 Releases "So Free (feat. Paula Abdul)" Via Cascine
First of all, yes, you are reading that headline correctly; Paula Abdul has officially made it onto XLR8R.com (she must be so excited). Secondly, the famous pop star makes a surprise appearance on the brand-new single by Finnish duo Shine 2009, "So Free" (pictured above), which was just released by the burgeoning Cascine label. The vintage-minded synth-pop outfit's new song—which was apparently inspired by "long taxi rides, the end of a sharp winter, and doing things differently"—comes from its forthcoming debut full-length, Realism (out on May 3). You can stream Shine 2009's "So Free," watch a fuzzy, VHS-shot video of the pair playing their single (sans Paula), and check out the LP's tracklist, below.
