New single from OMD – Sister Marie Says
Out on November 15th is OMD’s newest single “Sister Marie Says” taken from the album “History of Modern”. But the band has now released the video for said single. The single will also be released as a limited edition 7″ coloured vinyl. This limited edition 7″ coloured vinyl includes “Sister Marie Says (Radio Edit)” and the exclusive B-side “History of Modern (part III & IV)”.
A free download demo of the track was released on 25 November 2009. Elements of the song were originally composed in 1981 and a reworked version of the track was due to appear on the 1996 album “Universal” but got shelved because it sounded too much like early OMD and was out of step with the more reflective tone of Universal.
OMD’s 11th studio album, “History of Modern, was released on 20th September 2010″. It is their first album since 1996, and the first album featuring the classic 4-piece line-up since 1986’s “The Pacific Age”. A tour to promote the album will follow in November 2010.
