American synthpop project The New Division will unleash their new album “Hidden Memories” on January 27.
A total of 16 tracks will be on the album, released digitally and on CD. There will also be a Collector’s Edition – a double vinyl with two extra tracks.
The New Division make dreamy synthpop mixed with indie influences. Mastermind John Kunkel lists Tears for Fears, Oasis, Underworld, New Order and Depeche Mode as inspiration.
- I wanted “Hidden Memories” to be a blend of what I felt were the best parts of my early years as The New Division, a return to form of sorts. I picked up where I left off, back when I was listening to a lot of dance records ranging from progressive, trance, early new wave and synthpop. The blend of all those sounds is what I envisioned for “Hidden Memories” and I’m happy to say I think that was achieved, Kunkel says.
As usual, Progress Productions will handle the release for the European market.
