If you can’t wait for Alison Moyet to play the Ipswich Regent on November 4, her new album Other is out June 16.
“For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle/aged woman rather thrills me and instead I watch,” said the electronic pop legend, who last performed in Ipswich in 2013, followed by Latitude in 2014.
“Subject matter covers what you might expect from a pop album. 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. Some of us have always felt Other. I no longer wish it were otherwise.”
Other finds Moyet at the top of her game and reunited with producer and songwriting collaborator Guy Sigsworth, who - as well as having worked with Björk, Goldie and Madonna - co-created her critically acclaimed last album the minutes.
Moyet also plays the Cliffs Pavilion, Southend, November 11 and Cambridge Corn Exchange on November 12. Read my 2013 chat with her here.
