‘80s new wave icons Missing Persons featuring original vocalist Dale Bozzio are readying a new studio album. Bozzio’s inimitable vocal style, as heard on such classics as Words, Destination Unknown, and Walking In L.A., is the heart and soul of ‘Dreaming,’ the new studio album of cover songs and original songs.
The LP was produced by the multi-talented Adam Hamilton (David Hasselhoff / William Shatner). ‘Dreaming’ offers lush keyboards and atmospheric interpretations of some classic rock/pop songs by fellow ’80s legends The Cars, Joy Division, and The The as well as The Rolling Stones, The Mama’s & The Papas, and more – all brought to life by Bozzio’s unmistakable voice. The album also offers 3 original compositions – the dark and moody Lipstick, the haunting title track Dreaming and the compelling This Time – that demonstrate Missing Persons’ relevance to the modern electronic scene.
Listen to the first single, an infectious cover of Strawberry Alarm Clock’s ’60s classic Incense And Peppermints via YouTube below.
Bozzio offers these thoughts on the making of the album saying, “This was such an easy, breezy album to make, even though it’s been a long time coming. I think fans will really appreciate the sultriness of this direction of the music and the honesty of the vocals.”
