Wow!  One of the world's most notable electronic bands Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD to all us 80's kids) have just announced a new album called “History Of Modern” which will be released on October 10th this year. To promote the album, OMD are giving away a free download of track "Sister Marie Says" over on their official website

The new album is said to be "classic and beautiful OMD sounding" and I can't wait to hear it.  After downloading "Sister Marie Says" I was immediately transported back to the days when classic OMD tracks like "If You Leave" (still sounds incredible today), "Dreaming", "Pandora's Box" and "Tesla Girls" used to dominate my mixtapes.

OMD are also hitting the road in the UK – The "History Of Modern Tour" will play UK venues for most of November and you can view the full tour dates after the jump.
