OMD - "Metroland" (video) + Tour Dates

OMD's latest album 'English Electric' releasing 9 April is a worthy follow-up to 'History of Modern'.

The legendary electro-pop group has plotted a US tour, which includes a Coachella appearance, to promote the new record and now they have also released the first video for the project. "Metroland" is but one of the many stellar songs on the new release and the video was created by animator Garan Rushton and directed by David O'Byrne.

OMD's Andy McCluskey says: "London's Metropolitan Railway sold a dream 'Live in Metroland'. So many people were encouraged to move out of the city center that the open fields they fled to become vast swathes of suburbia. The very act of reaching for Utopia led to its destruction."
