Ultravox’s ’80s lineup returns with ‘Brilliant’ — first new album together in 28 years

The classic ’80s-era lineup of Ultravox — Midge Ure, Billy Currie, Chris Cross and Warren Cann, who reunited onstage in 2009 for the first time since Live Aid — this spring will follow up their comeback tours with the 12-track Brilliant, their first new studio album together in 28 years, EMI Records announced today.

The album is scheduled for a May 28 release in the U.K., and will be followed by a yet-to-be-announced, 13-date tour of that country in September and October. European dates also are expected. The album will be the first from Ultravox since 1994’s Ingenuity, and the first from the band’s most commercially successful lineup since 1984’s Lament.

The band’s Ure-led lineup — best known for hit singles “Vienna” and “Dancing With Tears In My Eyes” — reunited in 2009 and subsequently released the Return to Eden live album.
