Ahead of appearing as special guest of Tears For Fears on their 11 date UK arena tour this spring, electronic pop pioneer Alison Moyet releases ‘The Other Live Collection’ on Cooking Vinyl 20th April. Over a 35-year recording career, three-times BRIT Award-winner and Grammy-nominee Alison Moyet has released 9 solo studio albums and a further 3 compilations. 2017 saw Alison return with a new album ‘Other’, an at turns expressively poetic and archly wry collection of electronic vignettes which received acclaim across the board from the likes of Q, Mojo, Classic Pop, The Sun and Record Collector.
In support of the record, Alison embarked on a triumphant world tour which saw her play 59 shows in 58 cities including the iconic Paradiso in Amsterdam, The Fillmore in San Francisco, the Enmore Theatre in Sydney and 2 nights at the London Palladium.
This live collection consists of tracks spanning the entirety of her career, and includes the first airing of a selection of live songs taken from her most-recent album ‘Other’, reworked favourites such as ‘Wishing You Were Here’, ‘Ski’, and ‘The Man In The Wings’, as well as the undeniable hits ‘Only You’ and ‘All Cried Out’.
Alison Moyet first came to prominence as one half of pioneering electronic duo Yazoo with their short-lived alchemic partnership producing two seminal hit albums, before disbanding at the height of their success. Following a furious bidding war, Alison signed to Columbia and her extraordinary solo career began which spawned many multi-platinum albums and sold out worldwide tours.
As well as completing acting runs in both Chicago – The Musical and Smaller (with Dawn French) (for which she co-wrote the soundtrack), she performed at Live Aid, released the live DVD recording of ‘One Blue Voice’, is a Nordoff Robbins Icon Award recipient and was named as Classic Pop Magazine’s Solo Artist of the Year for 2017.
