Eugenio Iglesias English Beat
It is not every day an international music legend gets a second chance at making a first impression on the ever-changing landscape of popular music. And yet for Dave Wakeling, that is precisely what he is getting in 2015.
After three decades, The English Beat is releasing a new album.
It has been nearly 33 years since Wakeling, the founder, singer and main songwriter of The English Beat, recorded the last of three albums that put them on the international music map.
Wakeling's lyrics protested the faltering Thatcher-era economics, but did so with an undeniably catchy dance beat.
