Fuse auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Fuse is the eleventh studio album by British duo Everything but the Girl, released on 21 April 2023 through Buzzin' Fly and Virgin Records. It is their first studio album in almost 24 years following Temperamental (1999).[4] The album was preceded by the single "Nothing Left to Lose" on 10 January 2023,[5] followed by "Caution to the Wind", "Run a Red Light", and "No One Knows We're Dancing", in February, March, and April respectively.[6][7][8]


The duo began working on the album in March 2021, recording it in secret at both their home and a studio outside of Bath, England with the engineer Bruno Ellingham, with Tracey Thorn stating that they were "aware of the pressures of such a long-awaited comeback, so we tried to begin instead in a spirit of open-minded playfulness".[5]

Ben Watt told NME that they "wanted to come back with something modern-sounding. [...] We just wanted to make a piece of work that would sound great now in 2023. That was the driver." He also elaborated that Fuse is not "a pandemic album or a lockdown album – it just struck us that the time was right after 23 years of waiting", also echoing Thorn's statement that the intention was to be "a bit playful and experimental to see what happens. There wasn't a masterplan."[9]


The album contains a mix of electronic and acoustic tracks,[9] with a statement describing it as a "modern take on the lustrous electronic soul" that the duo produced before their 2000 hiatus.[10] The tracks "When You Mess Up" and "Interior Space" began as "improvised piano ballads" Watt recorded on his iPhone.[10]

Fuse received a score of 80 out of 100 based on 19 critics' reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, indicating "universal acclaim".[11] Paul Simpson of AllMusic wrote that "the duo immediately make it clear that they aren't interested in dwelling in the past", as the album has "sparse, clear production", with Thorn's "roughened" voice adding "more emotional weight to her lyrics, which are as thoughtful as ever, yet especially relevant for the 2020s".[12] Lucy O'Brien of Mojo felt similarly, that Thorn's "voice is front, central and confidently clear in the mix. So too is their cleverly sculpted sonic overload, weaving in and out of evocative lyrical imagery and rhythmic flow".[16]

Alexis Petridis of The Guardian felt that the duo "have absorbed the revolutions in dance and electronic music since their previous album in 1999, and shaped them into melancholic, finely detailed stories", concluding that it is "an album that manages to be different from anything they've recorded before yet perfectly in keeping with their past: a comeback worth waiting for".[14] Helen Brown of The Independent wrote that Fuse "makes a church of its elegant electronica: all vaulting arcs of yearning melody and glimmers of stained glass that dance upwards, to the familiar urban spire of Thorn’s beautiful, hangdog voice".[15]

Robin Murray of Clash called it "a graceful, majestic, moving experience, one that dips into club tropes while illuminating pop at its iciest, and most arresting", as well as a "rich, atmospheric song cycle" with "the emotional heft of The Blue Nile and the production nous of Massive Attack".[13] Reviewing the album for Pitchfork, Laura Snapes described Fuse as a "moving, handsome album that tells a sophisticated story about recapturing innocence" and felt that Everything but the Girl had not significantly diverged stylistically from "where they left off, keeping their connection to contemporary club culture alive".[2]

Thomas Smith of NME stated Fuse is "how reunion albums should be done", calling it "the blueprint for any alt-leaning electronic act in the pop space" and finding that the duo "remain both aligned with the pulse and thump of their contemporaries and ahead of the game".[9] Rob Sheffield of Rolling Stone felt that the album "picks up right where Temperamental stopped, as if they're hitting play on a cassette they've kept on pause for 24 years. But they keep it fresh, using the latest digital effects to warp, filter, mutate Thorn's voice into a deeper, more dolorous instrument."[21]

Reviewing the album for MusicOMH, David Murphy opined that "the more prominent the beats, the less exciting the song. But this is Fuse's secret victory: if you don't pay attention, it's harmless background fluff, yet if you concentrate there are mysteries and subtleties to discover that demand repeat listens".[17] Writing for Slant Magazine, Paul Attard found there to be a "weary malaise" on the album, summarising that when it "is firing on all cylinders, it feels risk-averse, leaving one longing for an album that mines its gloomy outlook and ambiance for greater impact".[19]

On 25 April 2024, Everything but the Girl won the "Self-producing artist of the year" award at the Music Producers Guild Awards 2024.[22]

The album was preceded by four singles, the first of them being the celebrated "Nothing Left to Lose". EGBT announced they wouldn't play live but participated in many nterviews and live Q&As events. The only live performance was recorded without public at BBC's Maida Vale studios in April 2023 and released digitally later in August, and physically for Record Store Day in April 2024.[40][41]

"Nothing Left to Lose", "Run a Red Light" and "No One Knows We're Dancing" were accompained by a trilogy of music videos directed by Charlie Di Placido (known for his work with Kojey Radical and Jungle),[42] while "Run A Red Light" had an extra video recorded at the Maida Vale Session and directed by Edward Bishop. "Nothing Left to Lose" and "Caution to the Wind" were also remixed by Four Tet and Fka Flash and released as EPs.[43][44]

Commercial reception

First single "Nothing Left to Lose" received radio rotation and entered several component charts, but missed the Official Singles Charts. It peaked at N° 1 at the Vinyl Singles Chart, N° 2 at the Physical Singles Chart, N° 40 at the Singles Sales Chart, N° 60 at the Singles Download Chart.

During its release week middle-week chart Fuse was leading for a N° 1 position at the Official Albums Chart,[45] but eventually peaked at N° 3, behind A Kiss for the Whole World by Enter Shikari and Live with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra by The 1975, and top 5 in several component charts.[46]

Everything But The Girl auf Wikipedia (oder andere Quellen):

Everything but the Girl sind ein britisches Pop-Duo, bestehend aus Tracey Thorn und Ben Watt, das 1982 in Kingston upon Hull gegründet wurde. Ihren größten internationalen Hit hatten sie Mitte der 1990er Jahre mit der Single Missing.


Nachdem Ben Watt (* 6. Dezember 1962 in London, England) im Jahr 1982 über eine Annonce am Schwarzen Brett an der University of Hull Kontakt mit Tracey Thorn (* 26. September 1962 in Brookmans Park, England) aufgenommen hatte, gründeten sie das Duo Everything but the Girl. Die beiden wurden sowohl beruflich als auch privat ein Paar. Den Bandnamen entnahmen sie dem Werbe-Slogan „Wir verkaufen Ihnen alles fürs Schlafzimmer – bis auf eine Frau!“ eines örtlichen Möbelhauses.

Hull galt in der britischen Musikszene als provinziell und brachte kaum Talente hervor. Die Anfänge des Duos waren daher ungewöhnlich und galt vielen als erfrischend originell. Watt empfand die Stadt dennoch als lebendig und nicht als Sackgasse.[1] Im Januar 1983 hatte das Duo seinen ersten Auftritt im Londoner Institut für zeitgenössische Musik.[2] Für Thorn war Lindy Morrison (* 1951) eine Mentorin; mit der Schlagzeugerin der australischen Band The Go-Betweens von 1980 bis 1989 hatte Thorn über Jahrzehnte engen Kontakt.[3]

Ihre erste Hit-Single war im Frühjahr 1984 Each and Every One. Viele Jahre galt das Duo außerhalb von Großbritannien als Geheimtipp. Von 1992 bis 1993 musste Everything but the Girl eine Zwangspause einlegen, da Ben Watt schwer am Churg-Strauss-Syndrom erkrankt war.[4]

Mitte 1994 veröffentlichten sie dann ihr Album Amplified Heart. Nach der Veröffentlichung des Albums endete die Zusammenarbeit mit ihrem bisherigen Label.[5] Mit dem Todd-Terry-Remix der Single Missing, die im Original nur Platz 68 der britischen Charts erreicht hatte, gelang ihnen jedoch im Herbst 1995 ein weltweiter Hit. Es galt der nächsten Generation als „prägendes Lied der 90er“.[6] Auch das darauf folgende Album Walking Wounded konnte sich in vielen Ländern in den Charts platzieren. Die daraus ausgekoppelten Singles Wrong und Walking Wounded zeigten Einflüsse von House und Drum and Bass. In den folgenden Jahren veröffentlichte Everything but the Girl verschiedene Studio- und Remix-Alben. Seit 2000 zogen Thorn und Watt sich immer mehr zurück, um ihre drei Kinder zu erziehen. Dennoch setzten die Eltern mit kreativen Projekten fort: Sie machten Soloalben, schrieben Bücher und engagierten sich in der Musikindustrie.[3] Watt war in dieser Zeit solo als DJ, Produzent, Clubbetreiber und Eigentümer des House-Labels Buzzin’ Fly tätig.[5] Sowohl Watt als auch Thorn produzierten weiter solo Musik. Im Frühjahr 2005 erschien die Remix-Compilation Adapt or Die – 10 Years of Remix.

Im November 2022 kündigte die Band überraschend an, an einem neuen Studioalbum zu arbeiten.[5] Am 10. Januar 2023 erschien vorab die erste Single Nothing Left to Lose.

Watt veröffentlichte 2014 den autobiographischen Roman Romany and Tom über seine Eltern.[9] Der Vater war Jazz-Musiker und die Mutter klassische Shakespeare-Schauspielerin und Journalistin; britische Kritiker lobten sein schriftstellerisches Talent. Thorn veröffentlichte 2015 eine unkonventionelle Autobiographie unter dem Titel Naked at the Albert Hall, mit dem Titel spielte sie auf ihre wiederkehrende Erfahrung des Lampenfiebers an.[10]
