And One – covers album suddenly appears from a puff of smoke

Posted in News with tags , on January 30, 2009 by softsynth

So And One, seemingly without notice, have released their long delayed covers album, Bodypop 1 ½ today. The album (formally an EP but expanded over the months) features cover versions of electropop classics by bands like Depeche Mode, Camouflage, Erasure, Yazoo, Alphaville, the Pet Shop Boys and New Order. It seems to be a collection of remixed and newer tracks as well as the collection of live covers, a far cry from what was originally proposed over a year ago. Haven’t heard it yet except for lead single “Timekiller” which is pretty awesome. Very curious to see what they do with this selection of tracks. Will report back as soon as I have a listen…
