Visage release Multitrack Stems to "Fade To Grey" – One of the biggest songs of the 1980's
The package includes:
A Steve Strange Signed CD copy of the "Orchestral" album
Limited edition "Hearts Bonus CD" 4 Track Printed Promo CD (includes special unreleased mixes)
Limited edition "Frequency 7" 3 Track Printed Promo CD
After what can only be described as a phenomenal year promoting and performing their highly successful 2013 comeback album 'Hearts And Knives', Visage return with an interpretation of their most famous track. Fade To Grey performed with a full orchestra.
Steve Strange features prominently in the Spandau Ballet bio-pic film "Soul Boys Of the Western World". Prior to forming Visage Steve Strange was co-founder of London's Blitz Club the birth place of the New Romantics and the first venue to host a Spandau Ballet concert (which was commemorated recently with a PRS Blue Plaque on Blitz building).
After what can only be described as a phenomenal year promoting and performing their highly successful comeback album 'Hearts And Knives', Visage round off with a fifth and final single. "She's Electric (Coming Around)" was always the track with the most identifiable "Fade To Grey Sound" on the album. From the CR78 drum beats, Polymoogs and minor key pads right down to the sounds of forlorn longing and hopeless romance.
"Hidden Sign" is the tale of an love affair and its over analysis by the two participants. Does the love affair survive? – Draw your own conclusion. The track highlights the masterful bass playing of Visage bass player Steve Barnacle. The clean amped sound and 80s beats and grooves propel this song along, leaving just enough space for Robin Simons (Ex Ultravox) masterful guitar and Steves thoughtful vocal.
