Spandau Ballet To Release First Single In 20 Years.

From telegraph.co.uk: The band, who have reunited after one of the most acrimonious splits in pop, kick off their comeback tour next month.

They have signed a new deal with Mercury Records to release a single and album in November. Their last release was in 1989.

Singer Tony Hadley said: "When we got back together and the tour dates went on sale, none of us could believe the fantastic reaction we got from fans and the press alike.

"When the opportunity came to get into a studio and play music together, we couldn't pass it up."

Songwriter Gary Kemp added: "The band gelled immediately and we played better than we did even back in the day. The new song was a way for us to show that Spandau Ballet are back, not just to play the hits on tour but also to take on our contemporaries in the pop charts."

The band will pocket an estimated £12 million for the tour, which begins at the O2 Arena in Dublin on Oct. 13.

The reunion ends a lengthy separation in which three of the band's members sued Kemp for a £1 million share of the royalties and lost.

The new single will be called "Once More" from the album of the same name. Fans will be able to download a track from the new album at
