Soft Cell - legendary frontman Marc Almond and producer/instrumentalist Dave Ball - are set to return with their fifth studio album *Happiness Not Included, which is set for release via a new deal with BMG.
It represents their first new album since they issued ‘Cruelty Without Beauty’ back in 2002.
Frontman Marc Almond said in a press release, “In this album I wanted to look at us as a society: a place where we have chosen to put profits before people, money before morality and decency, food before the rights of animals, fanaticism before fairness and our own trivial comforts before the unspeakable agonies of others. But in the album there is also a belief that there is a utopia if we can peel back the layers and understand what really matters.”
Release date: 6th May, 2022
