London, Sept 25 (ANI): British band Spandau Ballet are all set to release their first single in 20 years.

The band, which released their last studio album in 1989, had initially agreed on a string of gigs after their reunion in March this year, however they have now hit the studio.

The group, which has international hits like Gold and True to their credit, have recorded a new single, Once More, and will release an album with Mercury Records in November.

The Telegraph quoted the band’s guitarist and songwriter Gary Kemp as saying: “The band gelled immediately and we immediately played better than we did even back in the day.

“The new song was a way for us to show that Spandau Ballet are back, not just to play the hits on tour but also to take on our contemporaries in the pop charts.”

Frontman Tony Hadley said: “When we got back together and the tour dates went on sale, none of us could believe the fantastic reaction we got from fans and the press alike.

“When the opportunity came to get into a studio and play music together, we couldn’t pass it up.

The band’s Reformation Tour is slated to begin in October (09). (ANI)
