The Human League begin work on new album

Electro band have new songs, but no record deal

The Human League begin work on new album
The Human League are plotting a new album, even though they have no idea how they will release it.

The electro-pop band have been in the studio working on their first new material since 2001's 'Secrets' LP.

They told BBC 6Music that in the absence of a record deal, they are having to think of new ways to get the music out there.

Singer Joanne Catherall said: "We've always been supported by record companies and that's not really happening to as many groups anymore. We'll have to find another way of getting it out to the public.

"We're all keen to put out new music, our only problem is, the way we have traditionally put out music is not available to us anymore.

"It's quite scary having to think about it, because someone else has sort of run, we make the records, and someone else does everything else for us, and now we've got to do it all ourselves, and as everyone knows we're incredibly slow, and lazy!"

In the meantime, The Human League are heading out on a major UK tour next month, calling at:

Glasgow Academy (November 30)
Newcastle Academy (1)
Nottingham Royal Concert Hall (3)
Liverpool Echo Arena (4)
Brighton Centre (5)
Bournemouth Arena (6)
London Hammersmith Apollo (8)
Manchester Apollo (10)
Wolverhampton Civic (11)
Newport Centre (12)
Sheffield Hallam FM Arena (13)
