Neil Arthur announces new project, Fader, plus a new Blancmange album and a Near Future collaboration…

BLANCMANGE's NEIL ARTHUR has announced his involvement in a new project, FADER, which is a collaboration with BENGE who in turn is also a member of WRANGLER and JOHN FOXX & THE MATHS.

The first release from the project will be an album entitled 'First Light' which is described as being "full of powerful electronic pop songs – up-tempo, dark, with flickers of beauty in the sounds and rhythms that echo old Joy Division tunes and even bands like The Sound at their most synthesiser heavy".

Here's the title track from 'First Light':

The 'First Light' album will be released on June 23rd on Arthur's Blanc Check label and will be preceded by a single 'I Prefer Solitude' on June 7th.

Meanwhile Neil Arthur will release a new Blancmange album, 'Unfurnished Rooms', in September and is currently collaborating with art-pop electronic artist Bernholz on his forthcoming Near Future project.
