Metronomy have announced a special edition of their February album Small World, and have unveiled Katy J Pearson's reimagining of "Love Factory" to accompany the news.

Katy J Pearson's reimagined version of "Love Factory" is the first outing from Small World (Special Edition), which is made up of reworked versions of songs from Metronomy's February album Small World.

Katy J Pearson says, "I've been a huge fan of Metronomy for a long time. The records they made had a big influence on my music. I have fond memories of travelling up to Bristol to watch them play in when I was a teenager and the shows being so joyous. Brilliantly intelligent pop music. I met Joe after their show in Bristol and we got chatting. After this encounter I got asked to rework "Love Factory" for the special edition of their album Small World. I was so excited as "Love Factory" is my favourite song from the new record. It’s so beautiful! So I was very flattered and honoured to have the chance to put my own spin on it. I wanted to strip it down to basics and make it a vulnerable duet. I’d been listening to a lot of Nancy Lee & Lee Hazelwood at the time so making it a pop duet felt really fun to do."

Small World (Special Edition) will also include reimagined tracks by Jessica Winter, Haich Ber Na, Sébastian Tellier, Nadeem Din Gibisi and Tony Njoku, Porij and more.


  1. Metronomy x Porij - Life and Death
  2. Metronomy x PPJ - Things will be fine
  3. Metronomy x Panic Shack - It’s good to be back
  4. Metronomy x Nadeem Din Gibisi & Tony Njoku - Loneliness on the run
  5. Metronomy x Katy J Pearson - Love Factory
  6. Metronomy x Jessica Winter - I lost my mind
  7. Metronomy x Haich Ber Na - Right on time
  8. Metronomy x Bolis Pupul - Hold me tonight

Katy J Pearson's reworking of "Love Factory" is out now. Metronomy will release Small World (Special Edition) on 29 November via Because Music.
