Out on a few weeks is “Another Fall From Grace”, a brand new The Mission album. It was produced by Wayne Hussey and Tim Palmer, who already produced the band’s 1986 debut album “God’s own Medicine” and 1990’s “Carved in Sand”.
The album features guest backing vocals from Gary Numan, Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), Ville Valo (HIM), Julianne Regan (All About Eve) and Evi Vine and will be released as a CD (available here), a 2CD + DVD set (available here) and as a 2LP vinyl set (available here).
Here’s what Wayne Hussey has to say about the new album: “For me, this new Mission album is the long lost missing link between The Sisters Of Mercy’s First & Last & Always and The Mission’s God’s Own Medicine, both albums of course that I was heavily involved in making. I set out this time with the intention of making an album that sounds like 1985.”
The deluxe version of the album contains the full album on CD, a bonus-CD with instrumental version of the album with the additional bonus remix track “Met-Amor-Phosis” (of which you can preview the original below) and a 93 minute DVD featuring never before seen footage from 1987 of The Mission performing at Elland Road, Leeds, supporting U2 at the Aston Villa Leisure Centre as The Metal Gurus and The Royal Court in Liverpool for the Hillsborough benefit gig, both from 1989, producer Tim Palmer’s home footage of the recording of “Carved in Sand”/”Butterfly on a Wheel” video, and the promo video for the new single “Met-Amor-Phosis”.
Below you can listen to the first single from the album: “Met-amor-phosis” featuring Ville Valo (HIM).
