Trevor Horn has announced that he’ll release a new studio album in early 2019.

Titled Trevor Horn Reimagines The Eighties, it will launch on February 1 via BMG and sees Horn cover popular tracks from the decade along with The Sarm Orchestra.

He’s also recruited a variety of guests for the record, including Marillion frontman Steve Hogarth who appears on the cover of Joe Jackson’s It’s Different For Girls.

Horn says: “The best thing about making this album was all the fun and laughter that came from hanging out with musicians and artists that I haven’t seen for years.”

The first track is now available – and it’s a cover of the Tears For Fears classic Everybody Wants To Rule The World which was recorded with Robbie Williams.
