OMD are preparing to drop their new studio album English Electric on April 9th. On Monday, the band premiered the video for the album's first single, "Metroland."  Watch the video below via Rolling Stone:



A new interview with OMD's Andy McCluskey is available to read on their official Facebook page. McCluskey tells quite a few interesting stories (talked tour riders, practical jokes, and more), and revealed he was beyond thrilled when OMD's song "Enola Gay" was used as part of the Olympic ceremony in London in 2012:

"It’s just a buzz to think that 20% of the people on the planet have just heard your song right there and then and, live. It was incredible; you know I never believe anything is going to happen in the music industry until it happens. I had been asked if I would sanction it and I said yes and I thought they’re never going to use it, even though I know Danny Boyle is a fan, I just thought they’ll never use it and the fact that they actually used it sort of pretty much right up at the front of the whole music section and it wasn’t just in the 80’s synth pop section was really cool. I mean my phone just exploded (laughs), the number of people who texted me and called me you know"

Read the full interview here.

English Electric will be released April 8th internationally as a digital download, standard CD, deluxe CD/DVD, vinyl LP, and collectors' tin boxset. The album will be released on April 9th in North America.
