About the album[edit | edit source]
Housed in a PVC slip case, the CD was sent to radio stations and selected media prior to the general release of All You Need Is Now.
This thirteenth studio album from the legendary British new wave/new romantic band is the follow-up to 2007's Red Carpet Massacre and is the first following their split with Epic Records. While the last album featured production by Danja and Timbaland and had something of a dance/R&B sound, on this record they have gone "back to basics" to produce a classic pop album in the vein of their early material. Produced by Mark Ronson, it features guest spots by Kelis and Scissor Sister Ana Matronic.
