After reuniting three years ago for a series of tours, OMD, the English new wave band who created key synth-pop albums like 1981's Architecture & Morality and 1983's Dazzle Ships, have returned with History of Modern, their first album in 14 years. The disc is also the first Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark album to feature the band's original line-up — Andy McCluskey, Paul Humphreys, Martin Cooper and Martin Holmes — since 1986's The Pacific Age. Above, listen to Rolling Stone exclusive stream of OMD's "Pulse," a dance-pop track that recalls the band's Junk Culture era. History of Modern is due out September 28th. For more info and to listen to first single "Sister Marie Says," check out the OMD official site.
