‘Dresden’ has been selected as the second single release from the new OMD album English Electric and follows on from ‘Metroland’.
‘Dresden’ dates back to 2010 and originally emerged during the History Of Modern sessions. However, the song lacked lyrics at the time, hence being dropped from History Of Modern. Andy has described the song as “very OMD” and it was one of the English Electric tracks originally selected as a possible single. The single release of ‘Dresden’ will feature a shorter radio edit of the song.
Promo copies of ‘Dresden’ are already doing the rounds, notably on eBay, and suggest a release date of 20th May for the single. No details on additional tracks have been released as yet.
