Today’s throwback is the debut single of the UK singer Howard Jones in 1983. From the album Human Libs, “New Song” can be also heard in the 80’s movie Supergirl.
Jones was one of the defining figures of mid-1980’s synthpop. His music merged the technology intensive sound of New Wave with cheery optimism, totally seen in our featured track. Hit maker in the 80’s, Jones became a cult figure in the 1990’s.
