New Andy Bell Single & Album Details Revealed

15 April 2014

Andy Bell - Beautiful sleeveUK independent record label Ministry of Pop have announced on their Facebook Page that the new Andy Bell solo single Beautiful will be released on the 5th May. The single is the first to be taken from Andy's forthcoming third solo album iPop which will be released in the summer.

The album, which has been produced in collaboration with Shelter, will be available to download as well as on CD (and possibly limited edition CD) and also features the song Lift Me Up which features Vince Clarke. Andy will also be touring to promote the album, although no live dates have been confirmed.

It would appear that Andy's recent collaboration single with Dave Audé Aftermath (Here We Go) is not a part of the iPop project. Andy and Dave have reportedly written/recorded around a dozen songs together, which may be released gradually over time as a collection of singles.

A version of Beautiful that doesn't include Andy on vocals is available to listen to on SoundCloud, although Andy's version is supposedly "more spectacular". I guess we won't have to wait too much longer to find out for ourselves!

  1. I can’t believe Andy is writing lyrics for the new Erasure’s album, for his third solo album and for his project with Dave Audé almost at the same time! I assume he has become a compulsive reader lately, since he will have to write so many lyrics. By the way, some lyrics of Erasure’s last albums were really inspired.

  2. Just wish for all their efforts the music industry would start giving Andy and Vince some recognition again, its a disgrace their hard work keeps on getting ignored, Andy’s other track Aftermath here we go, is a fantastic dance song which sank without trace yet again, Respect goes out to Andy and Vince who keep on going because many would have thrown in the towel by now.
