OMD making first new album in 24 years

Original line-up reunites for new studio sessions

OMD‘s original line-up are to release their first new album together in 24 years.

Called ‘History of Modern’, the album sees Paul Humphreys, Andy McCluskey, Martin Cooper and Malcolm Holmes reunited in the studio.

The album is due for release later this year, reports Electricity-club.co.uk.

Although the band have toured heavily since reforming in 2007, they have not released anything since 1986’s ‘The Pacific Age’.

Mike Crossey, who worked on Arctic Monkeys‘ 2006 debut album ‘Whatever People Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not’, will produce the record, which Humphreys describes as “very electronic”.
