British synth-pop duo ORCHESTRAL MANOEUVRES IN THE DARK are to release their first album of new material in almost 15 years.
History of Modern features the band's new single, Save Me, which features soul queen Aretha Franklin.
The album is Andy MCCluskey and Paul Humphreys' 11th and is their first release of the new century.
The duo were part of the British new wave invasion in the early 1980s and scored hits with songs like Enola Gay and Souvenir.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
Rock legend Eric Clapton has admitted the era of the guitar may be ''over''.
