German electronic band â€œNUDEâ€, whoâ€™s trademark sound celebrates break beat, drum n bass, big beat and electro punk, today announced the September 7th release of a radical new recording of Heaven 17â€™s classic 1982 hit single â€œLet Me Go.â€
Inspired by Heaven 17â€™s 1982 original, NUDEâ€™s version is steeped in big beats and melodic hooks.
The song, along with a re-recording of Human Leagueâ€™s â€œBeing Boiled,â€ will appear on their forthcoming second album, â€œBasic Guerrilla Moves,â€ released in October 2010.
Four different mixes of NUDEâ€™s â€œLet Me Goâ€ are available throughout Europe via iTunes and all the leading digital download sites.
â€œNUDEâ€™s take on Let Me Go is a lot more aggressive and upbeat compared to Heaven 17â€™s original 1982 recording,â€ says NUDE member Marc Werner.
â€œIt will be interesting to see how Heaven 17 fans respond to our version.
I hope that we have not lost any of Heaven 17â€™s poignancy and melodrama that made the original recording special the first time around.â€
With a Penthouse And Pavement nationwide UK tour that kicks off at the Edinburgh Picture House on November 22nd, Heaven 17â€™s music continues to be a big influence on a lot of todayâ€™s new artists.
NUDEâ€™s interpretation of â€œLet Me Goâ€ embraces the original sentiment of Heaven 17â€™s classic, while their refreshing upbeat sound puts a completely different spin on the song that makes it relevant again.
