ABBAwill release a brand new studio album called Voyage in November! The group have reunited and recorded a ten-track album which features all new material, including ‘I Still Have Faith In You’ and ‘Don’t Shut Me Down’.
Voyage will be available on CD, vinyl, cassette, a CD box set with exclusive poster, art cards & sticker sheets. There is no format with any extra audio.
The other news, as expected, is that a revolutionary new ABBA concert will debut next year that will see Agnetha, Björn, Benny and Anni-Frid performing digitally with a live 10-piece band, in a purpose-built arena in London. This will start on 27 May 2022.
Coastal are Aaron Hetherington and Jonathan Fletcher. From the north of England, the duo’s journey has taken them from fronting a Hardcore inspired metal band to now taking a leap into the 80s synthwave scene. Taking inspiration from their past exploits to make the genre their own.
Last Sundown is about life starting over again after years of struggling to save failing relationships; realising that what you had wasn’t what you thought it ever was. Nostalgic synths and catchy vocals combine to tell a story of someone sitting alone, watching the sunset as the tide comes in; contemplating would could have been and what is to come.
Last Sundown is Coastal’s fourth release, which will form part of their full length debut album titled ‘Memories’ due for release in the back end of 2021.
Architecture and Morality is the third studio album by electronic pioneers Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark. The album is often referred to as one of the finest synth-pop albums of its era, spawning three international hits, Souvenir, Joan of Arc and Maid of Orleans (The Waltz Joan of Arc) which together sold 8 million copies.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary, UMC will be re-releasing the 3 aforementioned singles in addition to unreleased demos, studio sessions and live performances of tracks from the album.
"OMD - Architecture & Morality (Singles - 40th Anniversary)" is out Friday, 15th October 2021 on UMC/Virgin and available for pre-order now.
