Back on the Runners: Dexys return

I don't think anyone saw this coming: a new album from Dexy's Midnight Runners. Except they're not called Dexy's Midnight Runners any more; nor are they going to be Kevin Rowland And Dexy's Midnight Runners, as they were for a spell.

Oh, no. This is 2012, and Dexys are Dexys.

It's true, as there's been a tweet:

"Dexys new album. Can't really say why, because it's hard to put down to any one thing, but it's working - it's early days, but so far so good."
There had been a reunion tour back in 2003, but this is the first substantial new material since the 1985 split.

No word yet on if the trousers have been selected for this version of the band.
