EMI are proud to announce the return of Ultravox with their first studio album in 28 years.
Following on from the sold-out Return To Eden reformation shows in 2009, the classic Ultravox line-up has recorded a 12-track collection of brand new songs which will be released on May 28th ahead of a full UK tour in September and October.
Dramatic, passionate and truly epic in scale and sound, 'Brilliant' is not only a prescient reminder of how great this reborn band are, but an exciting and vital addition to an extraordinary catalogue of music which today sounds more current and influential than ever.
Emerging from the new wave and electro scenes of the late 70's, Ultravox fashioned a form of electronic rock music that was uniquely powerful and delivered massive hits though the 1980's such as 'Hymn', 'Dancing With Tears In My Eyes', 'The Voice', 'Reap The Wild Wind', 'Love's Great Adventure', 'We Came To Dance' and of course the timeless and atmospheric 'Vienna'.
'Brilliant' sees Ultravox expanding their classic sonic template and reminding us of their strength as songwriters of the highest calibre. Full details of the album will be revealed soon along with the thirteen-date tour they will be embarking on later this year.
The tracklisting for 'Brilliant' is as follows:
