OMD is set to release their 14th studio album, “Bauhaus Staircase”, on 27th October through White Noise Records. This new release will be a continuation from their 2017 album, “The Punishment of Luxury”, and represents their fourth album since the band’s 2006 reformation.
During the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown in 2020, Andy McCluskey, OMD’s frontman, wrote the majority of “Bauhaus Staircase”. Concurrently, the band’s mixing of the album experienced a delay as Paul Humphreys, another key member, welcomed parenthood. It’s also worth noting that this upcoming album will incorporate older, previously unfinished tracks from the band’s archives.
McCluskey has indicated in an interview that “Bauhaus Staircase” willprobably be OMD’s final studio album. But that remains to be seen of course, never say never.
The title track, “Bauhaus Staircase”, is available now as a single.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
