Alison Moyet announces new album and UK tour (2017)

Alison Moyet

Story by Jack Foley

ON June 16, 2017, Cooking Vinyl presents Other, the new album from pop legend and relentless explorer Alison Moyet.

The LP is accompanied by a world tour, which will take in venues in the US and Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well as the UK and Europe. It commences in September and finishes in December, with the UK and Ireland leg taking place throughout October and November.

Commenting on the new album, Moyet said: “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.

“Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album. Dyslexia, locked-out syndrome, diversity, Persephone, doggedness and the Internet. Always asked what a song is about, I attempted to cooperate, but in truth though the lyrics incorporated my best attempt to describe what I see and of the meaning that is mine. I want, who chooses to, to find their own landscape or indeed none. Some of us have always felt ‘Other’. I no longer wish it were otherwise.”
