Soft Cell Share New Single ‘Bruises on My Illusion’

    Soft Cell have shared a new song called ‘Bruises on My Illusion’, which is set to appear on their upcoming album *Happiness Not Included. Give it a listen below.

    In a statement, keyboardist Dave Ball called ‘Bruises on My Illusion “one of [Soft Cell’s] darker cinematic pop moments with a classic Marc Almond lyric.”

    Almond added: “’Bruises on My Illusions’ is a mini film noir Soft Cell story about a disillusioned character with everything against him or her who still has hope for a better future, despite the odds. A darker ‘Bedsitter’. Dave’s ominous yet punchy defiant chords inspired the song.” 

    *Happiness Not Included is set for release on February 25, 2022, marking the duo’s first new LP since 2002’s Cruelty Without Beauty.
