Norwegian electro-pop icon Annie returns with a stunning new single titled "Cara Mia" plus details of a brand new EP.

"Cara Mia" - roughly 'my beloved' in Italian - is a storming house-infused dance belter, with dreamy vocal hooks and smooth tropical beats.

Annie will release her Endless Vacation EP on 16 October via Pleasure Masters. She's produced it with frequent collaborator Richard X, and features contributions from Jim Eliot (Kylie, Foxes), Stefan Storm (The Sound Of Arrows), and Hannah Robinson (Ladyhawke, Say Lou Lou).

It follows one-off protest track "Russian Kiss" from early last year. Annie last released a studio record in 2009 - Don't Stop - although she did release an EP in 2013.

A pop symbol, global DJ and political activist, Annie has the rare ability to move seamlessly between these roles. Recently following last year’s Putin-baiting, modern day protest song ‘Russian Kiss’ with a stint as a judge on Norway’s Pop Idol.

This year Annie’s music has also infiltrated Hollywood, featuring in Zac Efron’s new movie “We Are Your Friends” and featured as the epic showstopper in the finale of Adam Wingard’s celebrated movie “The Guest”.
