Human League Sign to Wall of Sound for New Album
Published Jan 13, 2010It's been nearly 30 years since their iconic "Don't You Want Me" became their breakthrough hit, but synth-pop progenitors the Human League haven't slowed down much, continuing to tour and write music to this very day. Now, it's been revealed that the band are reportedly working on new material.
According to British tabloid the Sun [via The Daily Swarm], the iconic trio have signed with British hipster imprint Wall of Sound. In other words, their label-mates include the likes of Vitalic, Felix da Housecat and Röyksopp. No word on when Human League plan to record, but an album of new material is expected.
The band's last record was 2001's Secrets, which was fairly well-received but failed to do much with sales. It's unfortunate, though, that Human League didn't release an album since then, when the whole world was obsessed with the '80s again. Hopefully they can catch the tail end of the retro '80s movement before grunge sweeps in with its inevitable return.
