SIMPLE MINDS BIG MUSIC Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl 2LP Set + Download

Overview:
Following their renaissance and rightful reappraisal of recent years, on October 31th 2014, Simple Minds will release their first album of new material in five years. Big Music sees the band rekindling the energy and attitude, the mystery and magic, that made them one of the greatest bands on the planet.

Among the highlights on Big Music are the propulsive "Blindfolded", which harks back to the powerful electro-glide of 1980's "I Travel", and the swirling "Human" and immediately infectious "Midnight Walking", both of which are reminiscent of the booming sounds of 1984's Sparkle In The Rain. The actual song "Big Music", too, is suitably gargantuan, with its popping syn-drums, a song all about the songs that make people feel ecstatic and romantic.

The most touching moment on Big Music, however, arrives with the haunting first single "Honest Town", a track inspired by fond memories of Jim's mum, who passed away in Glasgow four years ago. Co-written with Iain Cook of Chvrches, it is a dream-like travelogue through Kerr's childhood stomping grounds on Glasgow's South Side. "Broken Glass Park" is an extension of this theme, exploring the nostalgia of adolescent innocence and discovery.
