Pioneering electronic music act Cabaret Voltaire — now just co-founder Richard H. Kirk — today premiered the second song off its first new album in 26 years, an eight-song collection called Shadow of Fear that’s due to be released Nov. 20 via Mute Records.
The song “The Power (Of Their Knowledge)” — which you can hear above — follows the release of first single “Vasto” in August.
Co-founded by Kirk, Stephen Mallinder and Chris Watson, Cabaret Voltaire originally was active between 1973 and 1994. Watson left in 1981 and Mallinder has not been involved since the group became inactive in 1994. Kirk resurrected Cabaret Voltaire in 2014 for a live performance at Berlin’s Atonal festival.
