Legendary music, fashion and club pioneer Steve Strange and his band Visage are releasing an orchestral version of the multi-million selling Fad to Grey on the 24th of November.
VISAGE WILL RELEASE AN ORCHESTRAL VERSION OF FADE TO GREY ON NOV 24TH 2014.
After what can only be described as a phenomenal year promoting and performing their highly successful 2013 comeback album ‘Hearts And Knives’, Visage return with an interpretation of their most famous track. Fade To Grey performed with a full orchestra.
In March 2014 Visage were asked to perform at the closing ceremony of the World Ski Jumping Championships in Prague. Sensing an opportunity for grandeur, Steve Strange – the illustrious leader of Visage – joined forces with the Czech Synthosymphonica Orchestra. Headed by Armin Effenberger, their speciality is mixing classical music arrangements and full orchestras with classic synthesizer sounds. On a cold night in March with snow blowing Visage performed a ten song set of their hits with the full orchestra.
The new orchestral version of Fade To Grey has features a lush and expansive orchestral introduction followed by the classic track enhanced with strings, woodwinds and brass throughout. The package also features a re-recorded version of the main version that sold 8 million copies and went to number 1 in eight countries. To round off the single release are some instrumental and orchapella versions. Also featured is the mysteriously electronic “Feliks Arrival” remix.
