They inboxed me today, alerting me on their new album, new single, and new UK/European 2015 tour…
The new album, entitled BIG MUSIC will be released on November 3, 2014…It is the 16th studio album by Scottish Rock/Pop band, Simple Minds, and their first album of brand new material in 5 years! In the meantime, *Blindfolded* is the first single. More Fall records, falling out… lol (;o)*
Listening to *Blindfolded*, I am quite impressed on the change of style…A long way from their NEW GOLD DREAM days! I have always liked Simple Minds, and also had the opportunity to interview them, talk with Jim Kerr (personally), and have also seen many of their live performances. On one hand, I am very impressed, on the other, somewhat surprised, for this electronic trip. They’ve done it before, in the past, and for sure there will be someone (some Fan) who will not like this *new* direction. I like the uptempo Music of this track, and I also like the technological perspective of the video. They do sound a bit like Depeche Mode… ***Somewhere out there…you’ll never see…***
I wish them the Best of Luck, on this new evolution and…revolution!
Ticket details: I mentioned before that they’ll be embarking on a major UK/European tour, in 2015, touching many cities in Portugal, Spain, France, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, and the UK.
There will be a special UK ticket and album bundle with a presale at http://www.simpleminds.com, from 10.00 a.m. Wednesday (September 24). The UK tickets, along with the European tickets will be available, for general release to the public from 10:00 a.m., Friday (September 26).
