Head over to Alesha's MySpace to listen to a one-minute clip of the new Xenomania-produced single "The Boy Does Nothing". Popjustice also has a small clip and lists three reasons why this "'Mambo #5'-esque epic" is "amazing":
1. "Does he wash up never wash up, does he clean up no he never cleans up, does he brush up, never brushed up, he does nothing, the boy does nothing." CHORUS OF THE YEAR. (The end, "if the man can't dance, he gets no second chance" might be outro lyric of the year as well.)
2. One of the best bits is after the second chorus when it all goes properly mental with Alesha screaming "do the mambo, shake it all around now" before hurling herself into an "I wanna see you work, I wanna see you move your body and turn, I wanna see ya work it work it out now" bit before the final chorus explodes all over the place.
3. It doesn't sound like anything Alesha's done before, it doesn't sound like anything Xenomania have ever done before, and it doesn't sound like anything else that's been in the charts for however long it is since Lou Bega was roaming the earth.
The single is out on November 3rd, followed by the album The Alesha Show, released on November 17th.
