New Model Army release 'Innocence' (Orchestral Version) from Sinfonia.

New Model Army



The orchestral version of ‘Innocence’ is the first single from New Model Army's forthcoming new album Sinfonia. A stellar performance, together with Sinfonia Leipzig of a long-loved song which was originally released in 1990, this unique version sets the mood for what to expect from an album that enthrals from start to finish.

New Model Army are a band who continue to exist and thrive outside of any singular genre. Throughout their long and storied career, they have never taken the easy or safe choice, becoming notorious for shunning fame, and instead pushing the boundaries of creativity with each successive album.

It is the same music-first approach that led to this year’s Sinfonia. Recorded at Tempodrom, Berlin on July 15th, 2022, with Sinfonia Leipzig, a full-scale orchestra, conducted by Cornelius During, it may seem to some like an obvious evolution, however, in true New Model Army style they have broken down the barriers between band and orchestra in a new and exciting fashion, redefining that relationship and defying expectation. All songs have been arranged for orchestra by long-time friend and guest violinist Shir-Ran Yinon, who, in collaboration with the band, created something unique but staying true to New Model Army.

The show starts with a fully orchestral ‘Overture’, but from the opening notes of ‘Devil’s Bargain’ to the closing of ‘Wonderful Way To Go’, it is a journey through vital and visceral music, elevating the songs with both power and sensitivity and resulting in an album subverting the expectations of the well-trodden path between rock bands and orchestras.

New Model Army’s music lends itself perfectly to this new, fresh interpretation without losing its identity. Experimentation without compromise is the hallmark of New Model Army, and one of the primary reasons they are continually revered.

Sinfonia will become available as a Double-CD Hardcover Mediabook, Triple 180g-Vinyl Gatefold and Digital. All live album’s first print CD and Vinyl LP Editions will include the full show on DVD.

A Strictly Limited earBOOK Edition with Double-CD, DVD, Blu-ray, 80-page book and an exclusive Bonus CD with 8 songs from the band’s SO36 show in Berlin on July 17th, 2022, as well as various bundles will become available via an exclusive direct to consumer web shop.
