Listen: OMD, ‘Isotype’ — classic-sounding new single off ‘The Punishment of Luxury’

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark today premiered the first official single off their upcoming album The Punishment of Luxurya soaring, classic-sounding single called “Isotype” that will be released digitally tomorrow and will be issued on 12-inch vinyl as well.

The new album — the group’s first record since 2013’s English Electric — is due out Sept. 1 via White Noise Records. The group had teased the record with the track “La Mitrailleuse,” but “Isotype” is the first proper single. Pre-orders are now up through OMD’s site for the album and single.

Hear it below.






  1. Great track as usual!!

  2. Very Kraftwerk-ish :)

  3. Very listener-friendly.

  4. Carlos Parra

    Very Kraftwerk (wich is always good) and, in a way, radio-friendly. I hope get high on charts! Good single!

  5. Pinaholic

    Kraftwerk in the dark

  6. Robert Ahlquist

    Great track, classic OMD with heavy Kraftwerk influences. I also hear Billy Currie’s ARP Odyssey-soul in the bright lead synths.

  7. CD single please (or are they waiting to round up all their vinyl-only B-sides on a CD EP again…?)
