June sees the release of Other – the brand new album by pop legend and relentless explorer Alison Moyet.
Other finds Alison at the top of her game – making exactly the adventurous electronic pop music she wants to at this moment in time, with her voice and songwriting both intense, poetic and thought provoking.
Other was catalysed by Alison’s fruitful dalliance with producer and song writing collaborator Guy Sigsworth, who (as well as having worked with Björk, Goldie and Madonna), co-created her last album The minutes, which debuted at number 5 in the national charts and won critical acclaim.
“For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle-aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch“, explains Moyet. “Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album. Dyslexia, locked-out syndrome, diversity, Persephone, doggedness and the Internet“.
8pm – 8.30pm: Hannah Peel
9pm – 10.30pm: Alison Moyet
