9th February 2016

We are happy to announce: Karl Bartos' so called lost album »Communication« will be re-released on 25 March as CD and LP+CD on Trocadero/Hamburg! Originally released in 2003 it has now been entirely and pristinely re-mastered by Michael Schwabe, Monoposto Düsseldorf/Germany, complete with the bonus track »Camera Obscura«. »Communication« will be available in digital formats for the first time.

»Communication« is the first solo album by Karl Bartos - 13 years after leaving the legendary electronic group Kraftwerk - and it's a concept album:

"»Communication« is about the way images shape our view of the world and how electronic media is going to change the contents of our culture", Bartos says in 2003. And he was right: this theme remains as relevant as ever in 2016. The world of media described and envisioned back then has now simply become a day-to-day reality.

I've heard about this album through the related videos on Youtube. It sounds great, and I can't wait to get it on iTunes. It's about time!

"UK Concerts"
Hi Karl,

I bought the CD back in 2003 with the cool pull out pack.

Do you have any plans to visit the Uk in 2016?

Regards
Steve

No new album, just a re-release.
Well, I have both the 2003 album and the Camera Obscura single, so nothing for me here.
Wonder why a 2003 CD would require re-mastering, though.

'lost album ??? I've got my original CD copy of it with my other CD's...in alphabetical order between The Barron Knights and The Beat!!! I'll be looking out for the re-issue with great interest!
