A sublime reason for early Monday happiness... a brand new OMD album is on the way April 9th that the duo describes as a "12-track letter to technology, space, love".

Andy McCluskey says of the album: “The overarching feel tends to be a sense of loss, of melancholia, that things haven’t turned out the way you wanted them to, whether it be with technology or personal relationships.”


The original four-piece band will tour the record this spring in a set of shows celebrating the iconic group’s 35th anniversary.
