alive and kicking (symphonic version): information

  • Released on the 9th November 2018, 80's Symphonic collected some of decade's most iconic songs and rearranged them for a 50-piece orchestra.

  • Alongside tracks by David Bowie, a-Ha and Ultravox was a new orchestrated version of Alive And Kicking.

  • Most of the tracks were produced by Andy Wright working with Gavin Goldberg, the team who produced Big Music, Acoustic and Walk Between Worlds.

  • The arrangements were by Sam Swallow who'd also arranged the orchestral backings on Walk Between Worlds.

  • And, in another Simple Minds connection, the sleeve was designed by Stuart Crouch of Peacock and Stuart Crouch Creative. He'd been working on Simple Minds' artwork since Celebrate: The Greatest Hits.

  • Alive And Kicking was released on the 1st November 2018, nine days before the album. It was given its own artwork, which was based on the cover of the album.

  • A tiny number of single-track CD promos were also distributed. These featured the same, full-length version of Alive And Kicking.
