Their guitarist played the album to John to get a reaction, frontman Jake Shears revealed in an interview with the Sunday Times.
"We had a whole album of material but we just weren't sure we believed in it," he said. "Babydaddy played it to Elton John and next thing I get a call from Elton. He just says, 'This isn't it, this isn't the record. It's just not right.' So I went to Berlin and pressed the reset button. I had to be by myself and dream, be sexy and, you know, be bad."
The ivory-tinkling star is not the only music veteran to have a hand in steering the good ship Scissor Sisters into more favourable waters. As revealed to Spinner, once in Berlin, Shears hooked up with Neil Tennant, of the Pet Shop Boys, who suggested former Madonna collaborator Stuart Price as producer.
With Price on board, the group recorded what is already being predicted as a dance pop highlight of the year, due for release on June 28.
