Never miss another 'Alison Moyet' show
The world-renowned musical icon Alison Moyet will be touring the UK throughout October.
On May 6th Cooking Vinyl are proud to present Alison's new album'the minutes', preceded by the single 'When I Was Your Girl' on 1st April.
Her first album since 2007, ‘the minutes’ was written with and produced by Guy Sigsworth, known for his work with Frou Frou, Robyn, Björk, Goldie and Madonna. It finds Alison's voice strong and seductive on a collection of exceptional songs. Experimental, captivating and entirely cohesive, this is beauty with an edge.
Clearly indicating a new artistic lease of life, 'the minutes' is arguably Alison's most creatively-brimming album ever. It has subtle parallels to her synth-pop past, but is also bang up-to-date, taking in elements of high-end pop smashes, R&B, modern club sounds and electronic experimentation.
This tour places 'the minutes' centre stage and will focus on the significant electronic material in her back catalogue.
This event takes place at Usher Hall, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Following her mainstream 80's chart success, Alison Moyet felt somewhat shackled by the demands of major record labels and finally decided to go her own way, releasing exactly the material she wanted and setting her own agenda. Her determination paid off on 2013's 'The Minutes', released through independent label Cooking Vinyl, yet going on to reach number five in the UK Album Chart. Many have referred to the album as her "best in decades," some going as far to say it's the best in her career. Moyet's music now harks back to her electronic roots, taking a nod to her former Yazoo days, whilst still maintaining a fresh and contemporary sound.
