Having previewed his forthcoming album Chaos and a Dancing Star with the recent tracks Hollywood Forever and Lord of Misrule, Marc Almond starts 2020 by unveiling its lead single Slow Burn Love.
Powered by Marc’s joyous lead vocal, the new track captures the most pop-leaning side of his eclectic songwriting ability. Expressing hope of finding an ever-lasting love rather than one that’s “over before you blink your eyes,” Slow Burn Love is a positive counterpoint to the themes of romantic disappointment that have often inspired his lyrics.
Crafted in collaboration with the Ivor Novello-winner Chris Braide (Sia, Lana Del Rey, Halsey) Chaos and a Dancing Star provides another twist in the unorthodox artistry that’s become a hallmark of Almond’s career.
The album looks set to add another vital new chapter to Marc Almond’s recent resurgence. His 2017’s retrospective Hit & Pieces saw him return to the Top 10 of the album charts, and it was followed by the critically acclaimed Shadows and Reflections set, which became the highest charting solo album of his career so far. He also reunited with David Ball to say goodbye to Soft Cell with an emotional sold-out show at London’s O2.
