Recently, I was personally contacted by Tommy Olsen who owns a Norwegian production company. Along with Dig Music, his company KVK Digital released Limahl's new single "1983" on January 20, 2012. Olsen, along with Limahl, Stig Antoneson, and Rune Maurtvedt wrote and produced the single, which also includes two remixed versions. Here is what Olsen says about Limahl's new single:
The song is about the fabulous 80's with MTV, synthesizers, vinyl, and cassette. (Limahl's) "namedropping" several UK acts that influenced him in the song, groups like Duran Duran, Visage, and Human League. The release was exactly 29 years after the release of the UK no. 1/US no. 5 hit “Too Shy” by Kajagoogoo. The track has received massive attention and media/press from all over the world have been contacting us about Limahl.(Listen to a fishbowlradionetwork.com interview below from 2012)
80's VJ host Pat Sharp also did a teaser for '1983':
We released a new free "Limahl 1983" app for iPhone and Ipad last week following the release of the single. The "Limahl 1983" app is listed as one of 21 cool new apps to try out in this article from the UK website The Guardian.
