Gang of Four‘s Content is the first album of all-new material in over 15 years, featuring 11 new songs written by Andy Gill & Jon King.
Andy & Jon say:
“We have been working on new songs for some time. Here they are, on our new album titled C O N T E N T. The tracks are simple: vocals, guitar, bass, drums. It is a tough, loud sound. A number of the tracks have dual vocals where we swap the lead to tell different parts of a story. We write about daily life but where the point of view is often contradictory or conflicted. Sometimes it’s a drama or dialogue, sometimes it’s an imagined situation with contradictory voices or commentary (like “He’d Send In The Army” or, on the new album, ” Do As I Say”) where there’s a quasi conversation between a religious inquisitor and someone burning at the stake, where they both agree they’re two sides of the same coin. What we strive for in all of our songs, is to interpret the world in a way you haven’t seen nor thought of before. We feel you’ll hear this in C O N T E N T.”
