- I was in New York for the first time in 20 years. I was feeling melancholy. It was -9 degrees, it was dark and I was on a street corner looking into an almost empty restaurant. How could I not be reminded of Edward Hopper’s paintings?, OMD’s Andy McCluskey says.

There are 7 title references to the American realist painter’s work in the song.

“English Electric” reached number 12 in the UK album charts.
