Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark today premiered the first official single off their upcoming album The Punishment of Luxury, a 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.
