A brand new Dexys Midnight Runners track has been made available online, the first new track from the band in 22 years. They are working on a new album, and frontman Kevin Rowland has posted a demo track from it on the band’s MySpace – http://www.myspace.com/dexysmidnightrunners.
Commenting on the band’s decision to work on a new album, which followed a reunion tour in 2003, Rowland writes the following: “In 2003, Dexys were at last reinvented for a critically acclaimed and rapturously received tour. Again, it wasn’t a greatest hits tour, and many of the ideas and approaches that were received with bewilderment in 1985 were employed again. But this time, those ideas were understood and very warmly welcomed. The world had caught up with us. 2007 could be a good year for fans of Kevin and Dexys”.
