Celebrated record producer Chris Braide (Lana Del Ray, Beyoncé, Selena Gomez) recently collaborated with Marc Almond to create Marc’s first studio album of original songs in five years. That record, released earlier in 2015 was the critically acclaimed album ‘The Velvet Trail’.
‘Demon Lover’, one of the undoubted highlights of the album and a personal favourite of Marc’s, is the final single to be taken from the album. To celebrate the release of this final single, Chris Braide has worked his magic to create four all new tracks for a unique limited edition 10” vinyl edition especially for Marc Almond’s dedicated fanbase. The special edition midnight blue coloured vinyl pressing contains 3 alternative mixes of ‘Demon Lover’ and one mix of the first single that was taken from the album, the heartfelt melancholic ballad ‘Scar’ presented here in a heartbreaking acoustic re-working. All four tracks are unavailable elsewhere.
Chris Braide had fond memories as a fan of the long-form Marc Almond and Soft Cell 12” mixes of the 1980’s, stating "bring back the majestic, epic 12” mix, I say”, so, the Extended Remix of ‘Demon Lover’ is his homage to the sounds of those much loved 12” vinyls of his youth. "I was thinking you’d all think me mad being so retro and doing an extended remix but Marc e-mailed me and absolutely loves it too”.
The release is completed with the inclusion of a shorter single remix designed for the radio and an acoustic version of ‘Demon Lover’ with an altogether more intense sensitivity.
The 10” single is limited to 500 copies and is exclusively available through the Cherry Red website www.cherryred.co.uk
Every copy will come with a download code to access the tracks digitally.
