Shakespears Sister have announced their official reunion as a band, twenty-six years after they originally disbanded.
Shakespears Sister will release a Singles Collection, Singles Party on 19 July. The album features two new tracks ‘All The Queen’s Horses’ and ‘C U Next Tuesday’, as well as classic hits from the duo’s back catalogue. They embark on the Shakespears Sister Ride Again tour this October and November playing an extensive run of UK shows.
As well as the new tracks All The Queen’s Horses and C U Next Tuesday, Singles Party is made up of classic Shakespears Sister singles, including Stay, You’re History, Hello (Turn Your Radio On), and I Don’t Care.
Shakespears Sister’s debut album, 1989’s Sacred Heart was a top ten record and spawned the band’s first hit single, You’re History, which also went top ten. The triumphs and accolades piled up: over a million albums sold, a Brit award for best video for Stay and an Ivor Novello award for Outstanding Collection of Songs for the band’s second album, 1992’s Hormonally Yours. The pair went onto headline the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury in 1992 and supported Prince at Celtic Park at Prince’s personal request.
