Alison Moyet makes a very welcome return on June 16 with 9th album, Other. (Pre-order your copy here). The pop veteran’s first offering since 2013’s brilliant The Minutes delivers an eclectic mix of sounds and razor-sharp commentary. “For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition,” the “Is This Love?” hitmaker explains. “Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of [being a] middle-aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch.”

“Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album,” the 55-year-old continues with her tongue firmly in cheek. “Dyslexia, locked-out syndrome, diversity, Persephone, doggedness and the internet. Always asked what a song is about, I attempted to cooperate, but in truth though the lyrics incorporated my best attempt to describe what I see and of the meaning that is mine. I want, who chooses to, to find their own landscape or indeed none.” Well, there you go! See the tracklist and listen to the atmospheric title track below.
