Dexys Midnight Runners Making A Comeback, Post First Track In 22 Years
According to NME, Dexy's Midnight Runners ("Come On Eileen") have just posted a new track on their MySpace from their forthcoming album, It's OK Joanna.
When asked to comment by Any Given Tuesday, frontman Kevin Rowland said, "Don't call it a comeback, we've been here for years." OK, he didn't say that. But the MySpace page does say "In 2003, Dexys were at last reinvented for a critically acclaimed and rapturously received tour. Again, it wasn't a greatest hits tour, and many of the ideas approaches that were received with bewilderment in 1985 were employed again. But this time, those ideas were understood and very warmly welcomed. The world had caught up with us. 2007 could be a good year for fans of Kevin and Dexys."
