While he has been busy in dub, world music and audio visual projects since the Thompson Twins – famous for hits such as We Are Detective and You Take Me Up – split in 1993, this is his first “pop” record since Babble’s 1996 release Ether.

He says: “I so much enjoyed playing concerts around the world over the last couple of years, that I began working behind the scenes on writing, recording and mixing the songs in this collection.

“I have concentrated on other areas of music for the past couple of decades – but I find it incredibly rewarding to be making pop music again.

“There’s something so special about the way this kind of music works and, for me, it’s like finding a long-lost friend.

“Thank you all for your amazing support: it’s your enthusiasm which has brought me back to this point.

“I hope you enjoying listening to it as much as I have loved making it.

Science Fiction is out on Friday, July 13.

And Tom is supporting Eighties legends A-Ha on the UK leg of their 2018 Electric Summer world tour, which includes a show at Doncaster’s Keepmoat Stadium on Thursday, June 14.
