Preview new OMD tracks from upcoming album ‘Modern’

Omd_history_modern

It’s almost funny that the early-’80s pop/dance sound OMD helped to define has made a comeback (even funnier that it doesn’t seem all that long ago that they were an alt-to-pop force to be reckoned with…well, to me at least), so their timing seems just right for a return. Granted, I’m betting it will be in their own, unique OMD style.

The original Orchestral Maneuvers in the Dark (OMD) lineup (Paul Humphreys, Andy McCluskey, Martin Cooper and Malcolm Holmes) are set to release ‘History of Modern,’ their first album of new material in 24 years.

While ‘History’ isn’t out until Sept. 20, you can preview two of the album’s tracks now at their official site.
