    Tom Bailey, co-founding member of new wave pioneers the Thompson Twins, has announced his first-ever solo album and his first new music altogether in some 25 years.

    Entitled Science Fiction, the 10-track LP is due to arrive on July 13th. Bailey produced the album himself with assistance from Hal Ritson (Chemical Brothers, David Guetta). Recording took place in London, France, and New Zealand.

    Bailey previously released the album’s closing track, “Come So Far”, as its lead single. Watch the song’s accompanying music video below. The album’s artwork and full tracklist can be found afterward.
