Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark recently did an interview with Amsterdam online 'zine Face Culture. The six part interview focuses on the band's history - Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys discussed their early days, all their albums including their latest English Electric, and even revealed some of the songs in their catalog that they don't like and wish they hadn't released. Check out the interview below:

Segment 1 - discussion of pre-OMD bands



Segment 2 - on signing a bad label deal and having no money



Segment 3 - on their catalog and breaking into America & wishing they hadn't released "Dreaming"



Segment 4 - on drifting apart for a time and feeding each off of each other's ideas



Segment 5 - on getting back together & playing live in 2006



Segment 6 - on English Electric



English Electric was released at the beginning of April, and OMD are preparing to release the album's next single, "Dresden" on May 17th. The single will include the album version of "Dresden" plus a couple of remixes.  Take a listen to the single version and a new remix by Finnish duo Zebra & Snake (the Zebra & Snake remix will NOT be on the release, FYI):

Dresden tracklisting
