To support her new album ‘Other’, (release date June 16) Alison Moyet will be embarking on a World Tour from September through to December 2017.
‘The Other Tour’ will see Alison playing electronic gigs in the United States and Canada, Australia and New Zealand, the UK and Ireland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Italy, Switzerland and France.
Alison Moyet on the album…
“For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle/aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch”, explains Moyet.
“Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album. Dyslexia, locked-out syndrome, diversity, Persephone, doggedness and the Internet. Always asked what a song is about, I attempted to cooperate, but in truth though the lyrics incorporated my best attempt to describe what I see and of the meaning that is mine. I want, who chooses to, to find their own landscape or indeed none. Some of us have always felt ‘Other’. I no longer wish it were otherwise.”
Support comes from Hannah Peel, Northern Irish artist, singer, electronic composer and member of the The Magnetic North. At the end of 2016 Hannah Peel released her solo album Awake But Always Dreaming to great acclaim. Hannah’s third album Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia, released later this year, is a seven-movement odyssey composed for analogue synthesizers and full, traditional 29-piece colliery brass band!
