Anthems Electronic 80s 4 compilation by Ministry of Sound
Released 26 November 2012

The ultimate collection of the coolest tracks from the most glamorous decade

This 60-track album showcases not only the decade which brought electronic synth sounds to the forefront of chart music but also the ultra cool credible side of the 80s, and this summer saw a whole host of definitive tracks played at the Olympic Games from the likes of Kate Bush and Annie Lennox. This, coupled with brand new tours from the likes of Depeche Mode and New Order truly fortifies the return of 80s New Wave to the mainstream.

The album features an array of talent with classic tracks from The Human League, Duran Duran, ABC, Spandau Ballet, and Nick Kershaw before we dive into the cooler electronic sound of the decade with tracks from O.M.D, Jan Hammer, and Erasure. We end with a plethora of the biggest artists and characters to grace the era including massive hits from David Bowie, Grace Jones, Kate Bush, Eurythmics, INXS, Blondie, New Order, Gary Newman and Peter Gabriel.
