OMD return with the new album English Electric this week - it's out today in the U.K. and arrives in North America tomorrow. Today OMD celebrates the release of the new album with a live streaming session in Portland's Bing Lounge at 3pm ET (12 noon PT) and is expected to include an interview segment and live performance. The stream can be accessed here.

Meanwhile, OMD premiered the third and final video in the animated trilogy directed Henning M. Lederer. Take a look at "Please Remain Seated" below:



FYI the other two Lederer directed videos in the trilogy are "Decimal" and "Atomic Ranch."  All three videos are included on the bonus DVD that comes with the deluxe version of English Electric. 

One of the highlights of English Electric is the reworked version of "Kissing The Machine," the track Andy McCluskey originally recorded with Elektric Music (Karl Bartos/Kraftwerk side project) in 1993.  Take a listen to the new OMD version and the original below:

OMD "Kissing The Machine" (2013)



Elektric Music "Kissing The Machine" (1993)



The original version is superior in my opinion, but it's cool to hear a new, updated version of the track.

Stream OMD's brilliant new album, English Electric, over at Pitchfork through tomorrow. Buy the album through the OMD store, iTunes, Amazon, or your favorite record store.
