Gang of Four have announced another new release featuring the late Andy Gill, who died earlier this year. Anti Hero is out July 17, and Shepard Fairey did the cover art. Check it out and listen to “Forever Starts Now” from the EP below.
Proceeds from the EP benefit Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, the English hospital network where Gill had been under care for a respiratory illness in his final days. In addition to the new songs “Forever Starts Now” and “Day Turns to Night,” which vocalist John Sterry wrote after Gill’s death, the EP also includes new takes on the band’s songs “Change the Locks” and “Glass.” Bassist Thomas McNeice and the Mixing Factory’s Santi Arribas worked on completing the EP. ANTI HERO is the second set of posthumous recordings from Gill, following the February EP This Heaven Gives Me Migraines.
