It's hard to believe that Alison Moyet has been around for more than 30 years and has plenty of hits under her belt. After making her name as the voice of Yazoo (with Vince Clarke ex-Depeche Mode) she went solo in 1984 and struck it big with her debut album 'Alf' which got to No.1 and stayed in the Top 10 for six months! The follow up album 'Raindancing' consolidated her success. By the end of the eighties Alison had racked up nine Top 10 hits (solo and Yazoo) and had been one the the voices of that decade.
Her next two albums saw her sales slip and record company Sony started dictating terms. After a hugely successful 'Singles' compilation in 1995, Alison stopped recording whilst in dispute with Sony. Instead, she became a singer for hire, guesting on tunes by Tricky, Ocean Colour Scene, Lightning Seeds and others. Sony finally released Alison in 2002 and she returned to making records for various labels to her dedicated fanbase. Her last album, 2013's 'The Minutes' saw her return to her electronic roots.
‘Other’, the brand new album finds Alison at the top of her game - making exactly the music she wants to at this moment in time. This is intelligent, adventurous electronic pop that’s defined by song writing collaborator Guy Sigsworth’s signature soundscapes. Alison’s voice and songwriting are both intense, poetic, and thought provoking.
