OMD Release Metroland Video
The music video was created by animator Garan Rushton and directed by David O'Byrne. You watch the clip online here.
OMD's Andy McCluskey had this to say about the concept: "London's Metropolitan Railway sold a dream 'Live in Metroland.' So many people were encouraged to move out of the city center that the open fields they fled to became vast swathes of suburbia. The very act of reaching for Utopia led to its destruction."
McCluskey also had this to say about the album; "The overarching feel tends to be a sense of loss, of melancholia, that things haven't turned out the way you wanted them to, whether it be with technology or personal relationships."
The original lineup of Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Malcolm Holmes and Martin Cooper will be hitting the road next month for their 35th anniversary tour.
