The Stars, The Oceans & The Moon

Echo & the Bunnymen are releasing a new album this fall, and it looks like the perfect introduction to their classics (and two new songs). They're re-working old songs with an orchestra, always the right move for a band with timeless string of hits.

The Bunnymen are still revered by those in the best of popular culture. In the past year alone, the highly acclaimed and culturally phenomenal Netflix series 'Stranger Things' has used the song 'Nocturnal Me' whilst the equally comparable '13 Reasons Why' has used 'The Killing Moon', a song also used on another Netflix show, 'Dead of Summer'.

1. Bring On The Dancing Horses
2. The Somnambulist
3. Nothing Lasts Forever
4. Lips Like Sugar
5. Rescue
6. Rust
7. Angels & Devils
8. Bedbugs & Ballyhoo
9. Zimbo
10. Stars Are Stars
11. Seven Seas
12. Ocean Rain
13. The Cutter
14. How Far?
15. The Killing Moon

The thing I like about this project is that the song choices are so strong. Including their greatest non-album track Angels & Devils is innovative and brilliant.
