Published Jan 10, 2011Former Ultravox frontman, prolific collaborator and experimental demi-god John Foxx continues to thrive at age 58, most recently with the release of DNA last October. This year looks to keep Foxx as busy as ever, as he's already revealed a new project with analogue synth composer Ben Edwards, better known as Benge.
The two have teamed up under the moniker John Foxx & the Maths and prepared a debut album called Interplay. FACT reports that the album is "more song-based less self-consciously experimental than much of Foxx's solo work, and in character it harks back to the pop material that first made his name in the 1970s and early '80s."
Ladytron's Mira Aroyo provides guest vocals and synth work for the track "Watching a Building on Fire," but the rest of the album is strictly Foxx and Benge. The album will be released on Foxx's own Metamatic Records on March 21 in Europe. No North American release date has been announced, so you may want to pony up for the import.
