Last week Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark announced details for a European tour and today they announced some fantastic news for fans worldwide - OMD return with a brand new album titled English Electric, on April 8th. According to the band, the album is an attempt to move forward, yet without losing their distinctive sound.  Last summer, Andy McCluskey was interviewed on the BBC about the sound of English Electric and had the following to say about the new album:

"Lyrically, English Electric seems to be an exploration of how one's Utopian dreams often end in dystopic failure and regret. Musically, it uses many current sounds and styles. Dresden sounds very 'OMD,' Our System is like a Glitch style Stanlow/ROTT if that can be imagined. Helen of Troy sound like Georgia meets first album Depeche. Please Remain Seated, Decimal, and Atomic Ranch use programmed robotic voices and have a hint of Dazzle Ships to them."

English Electric will be preceded by the single, "Metroland," which is scheduled to be released on March 25th. English Electric will be released April 8th as a digital download, standard CD, deluxe CD/DVD, vinyl LP, and collectors' tin boxset. Pre-order info will be posted shortly.

Take a look at the tracklisting, short promo video for the album track "Decimal," plus video of a May 2012 BBC interview with the band.
