No stranger to rerecording its classic 1982 single “I Melt With You,” Modern English has done so again — this time in the style of our times, the socially distanced performance that’s recorded separately-but-together over Zoom. Check it out right here.

Of the new version, frontman Robbie Grey said in a news release:

“We were all at our homes in the U.K. apart from Daniel (Jakubovic), who was in Los Angeles, and decided to film ‘I Melt With You’ to put a smile on people’s faces. We are aware of how much the song is loved and just thought a lockdown version would make people happy in these crazy times.”

The band will be reissue the “I Melt With You” 12-inch single for Record Store Day on Oct. 24, and recently released reissues of their Mesh & Lace and After the Snow albums on both CD and vinly with “reimagined” cover artwork by late 4AD designer Vaughan Oliver.
