Published Aug 21, 2018While Soft Cell may be gearing up for their last-ever concert, the synth-pop duo of Marc Almond and Dave Ball are still dolling out some parting gifts. Among them are their first new songs in 15 years, and you can hear one of those now.
Today Soft Cell shared the new song "Northern Lights," which you can now stream below. In a press release, Almond described the track as "a celebration of our roots in northern soul."
