Soft Cell reunite and work on new LP
The duo of Marc Almond and Dave Ball, aka Soft Cell, haven’t released an album under that moniker since 2002, but it looks like we’ll be getting a twenty year anniversary present.
What do we mean? The duo are back in the studio working on an LP. Here’s Dave to the Daily Star: “Before the O2 show, Marc and I hadn’t seen each other in about 15 years. In the years between, we’ve started to sound mature. The new songs are still catchy, but a lot more worldly-wise.” The ‘02 Show’ was in 2018.
“…it’d be inappropriate for two 60-something men to try to write bouncy little pop numbers. That doesn’t mean we’ve become miserable, and it’s not heavy industrial music either. I’d say the songs are sounding quite minimal, melodic and bass-driven… I’m really pleased with how it’s coming along, it’s sounding great.”
