Out on Secret Records on 12th July 2011 is the “Live at the Dome” CD/DVD by The Human League. The set comes as a CD and DVD jewel cased double pack and includes their 2003 show at The Dome in Brighton. Featured are such tracks as “Love Action”, “Mirror Man”, Don’t You Want Me”, “Fascination” and “Together in Electric Dreams”.
The band’s most recent studio output is 2010’s “Credo”, their ninth studio album which was their first studio album since “Secrets” in 2001. It has been produced by fellow Sheffield act I Monster and was released on Wall of Sound. A first single from the album, “Night People”, was released on 22 November 2010. Follow up single “Never Let Me Go” was released on 1 March 2011.
“Egomaniac” is the second single in Germany, Austria and Switzerland because The Human League secured a slot on a major German TV show for a performance of “Egomaniac”. The TV programme aired on Friday 4 March and the single was released the same day.
In those three territories the album itself was released on Friday 11 March in order to narrow the gap between the TV airing and the album being available. In the rest of the EU the album was released on Monday 21 March in order to narrow the gap between the release in Germany, Austria and Switzerland and the rest of the continent.
“Credo” is not available domestically in the US or on iTunes until the band have secured a domestic label for the record in that territory.

Working in adjoining Studios in Sheffield in 1994 ,808 State go for a brew with Phil Oakey and compare the size of their Synths. Its a Red Rose /White Rose situation.On home turf The League wins this time.

Back in the days:
German electronic band NUDE have released a radical new recording of Heaven 17’s classic 1982 hit single “Let Me Go” . Inspired by Heaven 17’s 1982 original, NUDE’s version is steeped in big beats and melodic hooks. The song, along with a re-recording of Human League’s “Being Boiled,”, will appear on their forthcoming second album, “Basic Guerrilla Moves”, to be released in October 2010. Four different mixes of NUDE’s “Let Me Go” are available throughout Europe via iTunes.
Good news from The Human League’s camp. The band’s first album in over nine years is almost ready. It is now being mastered at The Exchange in London by Mike Marsh (Depeche Mode, The Chemical Brothers, The Human League’s 2001 album “Secrets”, …). Electricity-club.co.uk also announced the working titles of the album’s songs. Here are the titles known so far: “Never Let Me Go”, “Night People”, “Sky”, “Got To Do”, “Egomaniac”, “Single Minded”, “Electric Shock”, “Get Together”, “Privilige”, “Breaking The Chains” and “Stars Start To Shine”. Still according to the website, “Night People” will be most possibly the first single.
So far the band’s label Wall Of Sound Records did not communicate any release date. The band’s website is under construction so you won’t find any information there.
