With RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 having premiered last night, it’s obviously the perfect time for a past Drag Race winner to release a new album and music video. Three other queens also leveraged the Drag buzz this week when Willam, Detox and Vicky Vox released their “Boy Is A Bottom” music video parody yesterday.
Her new PG-13 album is described as “an eerie, somewhat chilling mix of fright-inducing punk and emotional catharsis, these eclectic songs range from an anticipated pop-punch to dance-beat.” The first track on the album is “This House Is A Haunted House,” which features RuPaul herself in the opening narrative – paying tribute to her own song, “Cover Girl” with some of the things she says.
In addition to the album and video, Needles has also just released a documentary and limited edition book. The documentary is called Sharon Needles: Parental Guidance Suggested and it is an in-depth look into the making of aforementioned music video. The book is called, This Book Is A Haunted House and it is filled with “gorgeous and gruesome” stills from the video. It also features backstage photos, portraits, handwritten notes, messages, and scribbles by Needles herself.
