After over four decades, Canada's legendary electro-pop band Men Without Hats is still going strong while taking its trademark sound to unexpected places. On September 24, MWH will release Again (Part 1) a five-song EP featuring covers of Satellite of Love by Lou Reed, All Young Dudes by David Bowie, Blow at High Dough by The Tragically Hip, and 2000 Light Years From Home by The Rolling Stones. The new release will also include an all new version of the groups hit "The Safety Dance", reimagined as "No Friends of Mine" that will be available as a single on August 25th, 2021.
Although Again (Part 1) is a look back into the past, the actual recording process once again demonstrated that Men Without Hats remains on the cutting edge of technology. It's part of what's helped the band weather every musical trend that has come since to the point where "The Safety Dance" is now one of the most instantly recognizable songs in the world.
Men Without Hats' Again (Part 1) is the bands first release on Sonic Envy, the label launched by Canadian music industry veteran Brian Hetherman, whose sister company Cerberus also manages MWH. The band is playing select American dates this summer. More detailed touring plans for 2022 expected to be announced soon.
