There hasn't been a Human League album since the start of the century, but that's about to change: They've signed to Wall Of Sound, and have an album, and a press release, to celebrate:
Said Philip Oakey, “Emerging from a decade in which everyone seems to have spent their time looking backwards we are delighted to have the opportunity to march forwards once again and attempt to produce new and exciting music in a new and exciting partnership.
After a break from recording of very nearly eight years we can’t think of a better situation than working with Wall Of Sound in our ambition to make the best recordings of our career and to further extend the audience for, and the possibilities of, original electronic popular music.”
Not too much detail on what to expect, and given the nine year stretch since the last one, I wouldn't use the past as a guide, either. But whatever, it'll be worth the wait.
Wouldn't it be lovely to have something new from Heaven 17 this year, too?
