Soft Cell have shared a new song from their forthcoming record “Happiness Not Included”. It’s called “Bruises on My Illusions.” In a statement, producer/instrumentalist Dave Ball said the new single is “one of [Soft Cell’s] darker cinematic pop moments with a classic Marc Almond lyric.”

Marc Almond added: “Bruises on My Illusions” is a mini film noir Soft Cell story about a disillusioned character with everything against him or her who still has hope for a better future, despite the odds. A darker “Bedsitter.” Dave’s ominous yet punchy defiant chords inspired the song.

With “Bruises on My Illusions,” the duo has also announced that “Happiness Not Included” is out February 25th. It’ll be the first new album from Marc Almond and Dave Ball since 2002’s “Cruelty Without Beauty”. Taking a break for more than a decade after that record, Soft Cell issued the new songs “Northern Lights” and “Guilty (‘Cos I Say You Are’)” in a retrospective compilation in 2018. The release followed a farewell show from the duo in London.

Bruises On My Illusions released through BMG Rights Management (UK) Limited on: 2021-10-07
