Alphaville are finally back with with «Strange Attractor»

Great long awaited news from Alphaville camp. New Alphaville studio album «Strange Attractor» will be released April 7th, 2017 - via Universal. Originally slated for September 27th, 2014, but it was delayed. So waiting is finally over, and on March 10th there was premiere of brand new Alphaville single «Heartbreak City».

Alphaville's 7th studio album «Strange Attractor» is the crossroads of pumping fun and soul quotes with hymnic-baroque euphoria à la Frankie Goes To Hollywood, ABBA and Pink Floyd and a purity of electro pop as Alphaville did before at the beginning of the eighties, when the genre was young.

Marian Gold (age 62) had to reform his 35 year old band after the tragic death of the keyboardist Martin Lister in 2014. Gold tells: «I wanted primarily new material for a new band. The sound of Alphaville had changed. And many of the new songs also experienced extreme changes. This was due to the enormously long production time of 5 years. First we had to find out what potential these pieces contained.»

The new album starts in the minor, with the song «Giants» and a statement that summarizes the universe of Alphaville in a single sentence: «I hate to sleep / But I love to dream.» Alphaville's new songs are in this sense like Depeche Mode's «Songs of Faith and Devotion» and able to combine great feelings and life-clarifying thoughts with the vocabulary of pop. «Strange Attractor» is a hymn to the potentially world-enhancing power of the music - grandiose pop songs and magical synth beats.

Track list:

01. Giants 3:27

02. Marionettes With Halos 4:20

03. House Of Ghosts 5:05

04. Around The Universe 3:58

05. Enigma 5:59

06. Mafia Island 6:21

07. A Handful Of Darkness 7:48

08. Sexyland 3:50

09. Rendezvoyeur 4:15

10. Nevermore 4:49

11. Fever! 3:46

12. Heartbreak City 3:45

13. Beyond The Laughing Sky 5:39
