Gang Of Four will release a new EP later this month containing the last recordings made by Andy Gill before his death on February 1st.
“From the hospital, Andy continued to give final notes on mixes of music that he looked forward to releasing,” his widow Catherine Mayer has said. “Since his death, I have been working with the band to fulfill his vision. The only change we have made is to include on the EP two brief recordings of Andy speaking, both, in different ways, essence of Andy.”
This Heaven Gives Me Migraine is out on February 26th, comprising five tracks entitled Anthrax (Andy speaks), The Dying Rays (2020), Natural’s Not In It, Toreador and Purple In Nature (Andy speaks).
“This collection of songs was recorded just before Andy died and it was his intention to get these out – to represent the way we played them on tour, late last year,” John Sterry added. “All three songs were recorded in Andy’s home studio in London and there’s a fly-on-the-wall intimacy to this EP; from the song selection to the snippets of spoken word.”
