Men Without Hats is one of my favourite bands. Their debut album Rhythm of Youth (from 1982) is my favourite album ever. It’s the only album to-date that I loved instantly, every track, and have never tired of it. Everyone has one of those albums that they couldn’t imagine having lived without – one that has contributed to the soundtrack of their lives.
The new MWH album ‘Love in the Age of War’ is due to be released towards the end of May. I’m counting the seconds. It’ll be their first release in 9 years, and the second in 21 – a long time between albums.
The first single ‘Head Above Water’ is available on iTunes (currently for the US, rest of the world to come). Here’s the world premier broadcast. I just have to give these guys a plug – their music has brought me so much happiness – I wish them every success.
Ivan, you’re a master of intelligent synth-pop. I tip my hat off to you, sir.
