Alison Moyet returns to the Hall on Saturday 18 November as part of an international tour to promote Other, the brand new album from this pop legend and relentless explorer.
Other finds Alison at the top of her game - making exactly the adventurous electronic pop music she wants to at this moment in time, with her voice and songwriting both intense, poetic and thought provoking.
Other was created by Alison’s fruitful dalliance with producer and song writing collaborator Guy Sigsworth, who, as well as having worked with Björk, Goldie and Madonna, co-created her last album The Minutes, which debuted at number five in the national charts and won critical acclaim.

Other – album release and world tour
Album released June 16th via Cooking Vinyl on CD, vinyl, cassette and download
On June 16th Cooking Vinyl presents Other – the brand new album by pop legend and relentless explorer Alison Moyet.
'For me, making a record at this age, lyrically, is a different proposition. Observation in most cases replaces emotion. The invisibility of middle/aged woman rather thrills me and instead I
watch', explains Moyet.
Despite Alison’s professing of age, the music bursts with clarity, vitality and freshness, whether in the
zingy Lover Go, chic laid-back soundtrack-style The English U, Beautiful Gun’s nod to her rock and roll
roots, the icy Germanic arpeggios of Reassuring Pinches or ambient, spoken-word poem April 10th.
The hauntingly fragile and sparsely presented title track Other, accompanied by a hypnotic video directed by Steve Gullick, is available as an instant track download when pre-ordering the album.

'A great singer and latter day Delia Derbyshire' The Observer
The Northern Irish artist, singer and electronic composer and member of the The Magnetic North, at the end of 2016 Hannah Peel released her solo album Awake But Always Dreaming to great acclaim (Voted No.1 Album Of the Year – Electronic Sound Magazine and described by Q Magazine as a 'sublime electronic opus').
Peel first came to recognition in 2010 with her mesmerizing, hand-punched ‘music box’ EP ‘Rebox’, featuring covers of ‘80s bands Cocteau Twins, Soft Cell, & New Order. Having released her critically lauded solo debut album The Broken Wave, Peel then formed The Magnetic North, a highly praised and expansive collaborative project with Simon Tong (The Verve, The Good The Bad And The Queen, Gorillaz) and Erland Cooper (Erland & The Carnival).
She also created a series of limited edition EPs, – the increasingly electronic Nailhouse in 2013, followed by the stunning analogue beauty of Fabricstate in 2014. A year later Peel released Rebox 2 with music-box covers of ‘Queen’ (originally performed by Perfume Genius), John Grant’s ‘Pale Green Ghosts’, Wild Beasts’ ‘Palace’, as well as her glorious version of East India Youth’s triumphant ‘Heaven How Long’.
Hannah Peel's third album Mary Casio: Journey To Cassiopeia is a seven-movement odyssey composed for analogue synthesizers and full, traditional 29-piece colliery brass band! Out on 22nd September 2017 via My Own Pleasure, the album explores one person's journey to outer space, by recounting the story of an unknown, elderly, pioneering, electronic musical stargazer and her lifelong dream to leave her terraced home in the mining town of Barnsley, South Yorkshire, to see Cassiopeia for herself.
