It's official – Andy Bell's third solo album iPop will be released 12th May as a single and double album. Recorded in collaboration with dance duo Shelter, iPop is comprised of eight tracks, including the forthcoming single Beautiful, with the double album version containing extra tracks made up of a collection of remixes.
Unless previous Andy Bell solo albums, where Andy co-wrote every song (give or take), iPop is home to only two tracks Andy has had a hand in writing, namely Stars and Electrostatic. And then of course there is the song Lift Me Up, which sees a special guest appearance from Mr Vince Clarke!
