With ‘New Gold Dream - Live From Paisley Abbey’ (release October 27th, 2023) the SIMPLE MINDS show themselves from their best side. They remind people why they are still such a revered band after 45 years and why ‘New Gold Dream’ is such a critically acclaimed, groundbreaking album. The mesmerizing album ‘New Gold Dream’, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year, was the starting point for SIMPLE MINDS’ breakthrough as one of the major forces in pop music of the 1980s, reaching #3 in the UK Albums Chart. Working with Peter Walsh, the band managed to achieve the sophisticated, accessible pop sound they aspired to while continuing their quest for experimentation.
This success was reflected in three incredible and successful singles: ‘Promised You A Miracle’, ‘Glittering Prize’ and ‘Someone, Somewhere (In Summertime)’, which U2’s Bono chose as one of his ‘Desert Island’ discs when he formed the band and acknowledged ‘New Gold Dream’s influence on him and U2. ‘New Gold Dream - Live From Paisley Abbey’ offers fans the opportunity to purchase the recordings of this one-off performance either as a digital download, as a CD or as a limited-edition, red-transparent, marbled vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve.

“When it came to choosing a venue to perform New Gold Dream, we wanted to do it somewhere locally. And obviously the band being from Glasgow, it had to be somewhere nearby. But it also had to be somewhere at some Grandeur and something that was just out of the norm, because it is a special album for us. And so Paisley Abbey, knowing its history and knowing the look of the place, we thought this would be something special.” Jim Kerr
