Alphaville / Eternally Yours

‘Best of’ with orchestral re-recordings

German synth-pop band Alphaville are issuing a ‘symphonic’ greatest hits collection called Eternally Yours. All the songs have been rearranged and recorded with the German Film Orchestra Bablsberg.

Alphaville are best known for their 1984 international hit single ‘Big in Japan’ and enjoyed success in Europe at the time with singles such as ‘Forever Young’, ‘Sounds Like A Melody’ and ‘Jet Set’.

The new orchestral recordings are described as a “symbiosis between [lead singer] Marian Gold’s unique vocal abilities, the original Alphaville sound and the majestically powerful multifaceted nature of the large German Film Orchestra Babelsberg”.

The album is being issued in three physical formats. A 2CD set offers 23 tracks including some bonus single edits and alternate versions. A 3LP vinyl edition (available in yellow and black versions) delivers 26 tracks, with three bonus cuts on side F.

The box set edition of Eternally Yours includes a Dolby Atmos mix on a USB stick (click image to pre-order)

Finally, there is an all singing and dancing super deluxe edition collector’s box set that’s exclusive to German retailer JPC. This includes the 2CD set, the 3LP gold vinyl, a (gold) cassette edition and a USB stick with a Dolby Atmos version of Eternally Yours along with a hand-signed art print, large format booklet with a track-by-track annotation by Marian Gold and “photographic insights” into the recording history of Alphaville. The box even comes with a tote bag!

Eternally Yours is due to be released on 23 September 2022, via Edel’s ‘New Masters’ imprint.
