With just a few days left in his Pledge Music crowdfunding campaign, Daniel Ash has treated fans to the first taste of his forthcoming album Stripped, which will feature re-recorded selections from his catalog with Bauhaus, Love and Rockets and Tones on Tail. And the first track to emerge is Ash’s new electro take on Love and Rockets’ 1989 hit single “So Alive.”
You can stream the full track below — and revisit the original video.
Ash’s Pledge Music campaign has about five days left to go, and is still about 40 percent shy of its goal. The effort allows fans to pre-order the album in a variety of different formats with, depending on the level of payment, a number of different incentives, from vinyl records, old Love and Rockets stickers from 1987 and original Bubblemen artwork to — for $45,000 — Ash’s 1992 Heritage Softail HD motorcycle.
