Thompson Twin Tom Bailey back with new album and Doncaster performance
Former Thompson Twin Tom Bailey has announced details of his long-awaited debut solo album ahead of ashow in South Yorkshire.
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.
“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.
