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.
