Soft Cell Northern Lights / Guilty (Cos I Say You Are) Limited Edition 7" Vinyl Single


Recorded during Spring 2018 as Marc and Dave collaborated on the tracklist for their career box set, ‘Northern Lights’ and ‘Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)’ represent the first new music from the ever-fascinating Soft Cell. This limited edition double-A-sided 7” single features special radio edits created by Dave Ball. Original versions can also be found on the 1CD collection ‘The Singles - Keychains And Snowstorms’ also out September 28th.

Paying tribute to the Northern Soul scene which had such a pivotal influence on British electronica’s most influential and fascinating band, ‘Northern Lights’ is the brand-new single from Soft Cell – their first since 2002.

Featuring all the magic and class of vintage Soft Cell, the track has an interesting origin. At the beginning of 2018 Marc Almond and Dave Ball dropped the bombshell announcement that they would reform for one night only at London’s O2 Arena. In April it was also revealed that the September 30th gig would be preceded on September 7th by a 10-disc career retrospective box set, titled ‘Keychains & Snowstorms’.

In the process of sourcing archive material for the box set, Dave shared with Marc two new pieces of music, and suitably inspired, Marc began working on lyrics for them. Due to long lead manufacturing times for box sets, neither ‘Northern Lights’ nor its companion ‘Guilty (Cos I Say You Are)’ was ready in time to make the tracklisting. Instead, however, both will form part of the 1CD collection, ‘The Singles – Keychains & Snowstorms’, which will be released on September 28th alongside all the classics such as ‘Tainted Love’, ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’ and ‘Torch’.
