Berlin to Release New Album ANIMAL Tomorrow
BERLIN, the groundbreaking synth-electro-pop band fronted by the enigmatic TERRI NUNN, will release their seventh studio album, Animal, tomorrow - September 17th via Something-Music/INgrooves Fontana. Animal incorporates modern electronic dance music, yet remains true to the groundbreaking synth-electro-pop sounds and amazing vocals that continue to define BERLIN.
Animal is the result of NUNN's re-ignited love affair with current electronic music, and the feeling that BERLIN could make a unique statement in the EDM [electronic dance music] milieu. "It's still my favorite medium. I've loved it since I met John [Crawford, original Berlin bassist) in 1979, when he wanted to bring electronic music to America, because it wasn't here yet," she recalls.
To celebrate the album's release, NUNN and her band will be the special guests of The Grammy Museum for an intimate Q&A conversation discussing the new album and Berlin's career. As part of The Drop: Berlin will be the latest program to broadcast live on AXS TV, the premier television destination for live events, breaking news and as-they-are-happening trends in the worlds of pop culture, music, fashion and entertainment.
BERLIN will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics. Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves. The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. "The Metro" and "No More Words" were also chart toppers, but it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, "Take My Breath Away" that took the band to another level. The ballad's defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN's everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for "Best Original Song" in 1986.
