With a lengthy tour of the U.K. and Ireland opening tonight — to be followed by a very brief trip to the U.S. in November — former Yazoo frontwoman Alison Moyet today debuted the music video for “Changeling,” the third single off the electronic-infused album the minutes that she released earlier this year.
When former Yazoo frontwoman Alison Moyet this past February announced an extensive U.K. tour in support of her new album the minutes, she warned she had “no plans at this stage for tour dates beyond these,” a disappointment to fans in the U.S. and elsewhere. It seems, though, she’s had a change of plans.
Vince Clarke — he of Erasure, and former stints in Depeche Mode and Yazoo, of course — has been playing the occasional DJ set of late, and he’s got another one booked for June 22 at Velvet Underground in Toronto.
