Former Yazoo frontwoman Alison Moyet today announced that her upcoming eighth solo album will be called the minutes, and then proceeded to debut the first track off the largely electronic collection — a song called “Changeling,” which can be streamed and downloaded for free via the widget below in exchange for an e-mail address.
On her website, Moyet writes:
“I avoided listening to anything during the process of writing and recording this album, choosing instead to be lead by my own melodic voice, the one I now find myself with 30-years-in. Guy Sigsworth returns me to a programmer’s world and marries it with perfect musicality. I have been waiting for him. We have made an album mindless of industry mores that apply to middle-aged women and have shunned all talk of audiences, demographics and advert jazz covers. This has easily been my happiest studio experience.”
The new album will be Moyet’s first since releasing The Turn in 2007, and her first since re-teaming with Erasure’s Vince Clarke for a rapturously received 2008 Yazoo reunion tour and subsequent live album.
