Cutting Crew
"(I Just) Died In Your Arms"

The new album "Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven" is out now :

Iconic 80's UK rock band Cutting Crew return with a version of their era defining hit "(I Just) Died in your Arms", a highlight of their new album "Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven", now featuring a sixty piece philharmonic orchestra.
Cutting Crew arguably helped define the sound of the mid 1980's : expansive, ambitious music that wasn't afraid to strive for emotional scale, and "(I Just) Died..." has since lived on in popular culture through nearly two generations, embedding itself in the ever mutating cultural landscapes that helped define them. From Batman Movies, Grand Theft Auto and Stranger Things, to countless Tik Tok clips, and 175m Spotify streams : this song has never really been away.
New long player "Ransomed Healed Restored Forgiven" features their best-loved songs, now accompanied by the sonic heft of a full philharmonic orchestra. Original founder-vocalist, Nick Van Eede is joined by long-time Cutting Crew guitarist Gareth Moulton, as they look to both their die-hard fanbase and new generations of 80's acolytes to enjoy new takes on classic tracks which have refused to age.
The single features various new interpretations of their global number #1 hit. The "Orchestral Version" features sweeping strings, driving brass and added, intricate melody courtesy of the Prague Philharmonic, whilst the extended versions break the track down in vintage 1980s style before building back up to the towering crescendo. 'Orchestra Only' versions then strip everything back to the melodic core, before lead guitarist Gareth Moulton closes the single package with a nylon acoustic guitar version, marked by masterful playing.
Background : Grammy-nominated Cutting Crew were formed in the UK in 1985, by ever-present singer and guitarist, Nick Van Eede, alongside original guitarist, writer and fellow-conspirator from Canada, Kevin McMichael. Within months of forming, the band signed with Siren Records/Virgin on the strength of a clutch of melody-rich demos, became a foursome, and then entered the studio to record the multi-million selling debut album "Broadcast". That same year "(I Just) Died in Your Arms" exploded and made them stars at home and in the USA, where it hit Billboard #1, and has garnered 5 million plays since on Stateside alone.
The song has since found its way into films such as Hot Tub Time Machine; TV series as varied as Stranger Things and Ash Vs Evil Dead, and video games such as Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. "I've Been in Love Before" and "One For The Mockingbird" also enjoyed significant worldwide radio play, reaching the Billboard Top 10 and 20 respectively, and the band began their love for touring with worldwide stops as opening act for such groups as The Bangles, Starship and Huey Lewis & the News, as well as their own sell-out headline shows.
