Reunited chart stars Spandau Ballet have signed a new deal and are set to release their first new single for 20 years, it was announced today.
The band, whose last release was in 1989, had initially reformed for a series of live shows but then headed into the studio.
The 'True' and 'Gold' hitmakers are now set to release a new single, 'Once More', and an album in November after signing with Mercury Records.
Guitarist and songwriter Gary Kemp said: “The band gelled immediately and we immediately played better than we did even back in the old days.
“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.”
Singer 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 begins its 'Reformation' tour next month.
