Alison Moyet Announces New Album
Can you handle another big comeback this fall?
After golden oldies Duran Duran, Kylie, Seal and Annie Lennox are dropping much-anticipated (comeback) albums this fall, Brit pop songstress Alison Moyet is also making a return. Ms. Moyet's album is aptly-titled "The Turn" and hit stores in the U.K. on October 15.
A press release boasts, "Working with her producer and co-writer Dr. Glenister, she has created pop that combines pathos, drama and spills; from the lush orchestration of lead single 'One More Time' (available to cherish in your homes from the 8th day of October), to the greatest song that Ms. Dusty Springfield or Messrs. The Walker Brothers never recorded, 'Anytime At All.'"
Listen to a clip of her gorgeous new single "One More Time." The acoustic production values go very well with the warm, bluesy timbre of Moyet's powerful voice.
Moyet should join Annie Lennox on tour this fall. What do you think? It would be pure British hotness!

...maybe they should tour together... problem is, now that Ms Lennox's voice has gone, Ms Moyet would sing her off the stage.

Gotta be said that it's going to be good to hear the new CD come October.. Thing is though does it constitute a comeback? Much anticipated yeah I can see that but AM's comeback cd was Hometime, Voice and One Blue Voice added to the choices on my mp3 player and this one is a continuation of the promise. How long should an artist take between works? Is there a standard time? Every other year with a live cd in between to keep their name on some sort of artificial playlist? AM delivers the goods, Hometime is one of my favo CDs of all time and I fully hope that The Turn adds itself to the list. But 'snot really a comeback, nor is it the next big thing (in fashion senses) just the next cd from a fantata singer. I'd wish the time away til release but too much to do, but it's going to be ace I'm sure.

Alison is pure class...can't wait for 'The Turn' to hit the shops...

I've heard that snippet of the single. Gorgeous is right. The intro reminds me a tad of the intro to Nirvana's "All Apologies" but those lyrics are not remotely apologetic. Classy track!
Have to agree that "Hometime" was the comeback. From what I hear of the new music, though, this is far more than consolidation of what came with "Hometime" - it's something that pulls together the best of what she has achieved so far. She's lucky to be free of the whole career moulding of Sony. By ploughing her own furrow, Moyet is growing something way more special and durable than the big wind-machine hits that the conglomorates would have her spew.

This is the first time I take exception to any of the usually wonderful info you have on your blog. I've discovered many new artists and tracks because of the info here. However, just for your own info, the "comeback" you refer to here is so far from the truth, you can't even see the truth from where you're standing.
Alison Moyet has been releasing an album every couple of years since her departure from Vince Clark and "Yaz." Some have been less mainstream than others, but each one is a gem in its own right.
The word "comeback" is thrown around a bit too much these days, and really just implies that the person writing it is "out of the loop" when it comes to that particular artist. Alison never left. Pay attention! :~)

FOUR ALBUMS IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS.
A comeback ? Where from - oh I know she has come back from the local shop !!
This Essex girl (Alison was born in Billericay & grew up in Basildon) never went away. She has been around for 25 years - remember Yazoo.
The solo career has given us classics, that will be played long after I have left this planet.
Alf in 1984
Raindancing in 1987
Essex in 1994
Hoodoo in 2003
Voice in 2004
Hometime in 2006
FOUR ALBUMS IN THE LAST FOUR YEARS.
She has not been taking it easy in between albums either. She has been in Chicago the musical and theatre starring with Dawn French. in the play "Smaller".
She is touring the UK - 28 DATES between 19th Jan & 16 Feb 2008.

Good God, more of the same old maudlin crap from one-trick pony Moyet. No wonder her star faded out decades ago while Annie's star keeps on rising. Annie won an Oscar, what has fatso won lately? A pie eating contest? Ole fattie can clean scrub the floor of the stage before Annie performs. No one's heard of the fat slob in the states anyway.

Dawn Davenport. For someone as unknown as Alison Moyet she certainly registers up there for you. Was your mother fat? Did she sit on you? Do you have chubsome issues?
Why, you have been calling her names for years, potty-mouth. I'm surprised you spend so much time on her, you scary little fellow. We know that you are a middle aged man who likes to pose as being 18. Why is that?
Annie must be so proud of you. Sing sister.

oh, dear, old fatso Alison's fans are even scarier than Michael Jackson's delusional following. Especially how they clearly resent Annie Lennox for having the better career material and for being much more glamorous in her prime.
I'll bet Alison's really proud of all the fat, completely bald, ugly stalkers and middle aged losers with Wooden Teeth whom she can count as her supporters. All 10 of them! Ha ha!

I soil my knickers everytime I hear Invisible on the radio.

Steve's one to talk about someone lying about their age when he was panting after a 15 year old boy some years back. Still have the hots for Bradley, Wooden Teeth? Or is he too old for you now? Filthy perv.
Alison must LURVE having a pedo in charge of AlisonMoyet.com

Let's not forget that Sad little Steve-O, who runs the Moyet site, chooses forum software that makes it good-n-easy to snoop around and check out EVERY SINGLE PRIVATE MESSAGE that ever gets sent.
Ugly and nosey AND THOSE PRETTY TEETH LIKE INDIAN CORN! What a catch!
Posted by: Rusti at Dec 31, 2007 3:04:56 PM
Can you still see my teeth? I'd be suprised as my head is so far up fatso's arse!
Still, it makes me look less ugly than normal...

You're all cunts.
Posted by: Crazy Fan at Jan 18, 2008 10:37:44 PM
oh dear! Well, the real news is Yazoo will be back together for a tour that will bring them to the good ole US of A. Thank goodness for that! The Turn is a ghastly piece of shit and the last Erasure Cd was God Awful. Let's hope a this leads to a 3rd Yazoo CD.

I can't believe that I am (potentially) communicating with you! Today, (April 2, 2008) I made my 12 year old daughter listen to your vocals. She responded " MOM, I've heard this since I was 2" and it suddenly occured to me that she was right. But, I've never been able to tell her that YOU are the rolemodel for her; the best vocalist I have EVER heard. The person for more than 25 years I wish I had BEEN. Luckily,she's an alto like you. I was always kind of a mousey soprano 2. I followed you from the 1st time I heard you (1983) through now. I have EVERY album, and even marched across a quad in 1987 to find out how a guy had a single I KNEW was Yaz that I dindn't know(import from the UK which I bought!). I can't say enouth how incredible I know you are. When I found out you were coming HERE (Oakland US) I immediately bought tickets (sucky ones~rest were already sold out!)
I saw ERASURE last spring, but there is just no matching your chemistry. Can't wait! HUGE FAN, Michelle Clayton, CA

It's official - Alison Moyet's The Turd is a HUGE BOMB! Hundreds upon hundreds of copies of that, and the other shit-fest, Hometime were found in Pound-stretchers all over the UK. Oh dear! No wonder Alison went crawling back to Vince.

Woah they banned Russ T over at the official Alison Moyet site. Ha ha! A 40 year old man who gets kicked off of message boards!
I don't need to feel like such a twat anymore!
