Who could ever forget that classic 80s hit, “Everybody Have Fun Tonight?” Well, Wang Chung is back and they are getting ready to release a brand new album titled Orchesography. That’s not all, the band is also campaigning to have Wang Chung recognized as a verb.
“Wang Chung, one of the defining bands of the 80s who conquered the UK, US and global charts, return with their original key protagonists, Jack Hues and Nick Feldman,” according to a recent press release.
“Having become a staple of movie, TV, game soundtracks and commercials over the years, their name has almost uniquely passed into popular culture. The line ‘Everybody Wang Chung Tonight’ from their mega-hit Everybody Have Fun Tonight has developed a life of its own, prompting the band to appeal to their fans around the world to have it officially recognized in dictionaries as a verb.”
The band is still very much involved with their music which is prompting them to release their brand new album Orchesography in early May. To hold fans over until the release of the album, the band is preparing to roll out a new version of “Dance Hall Days” outfitted with an all new orchestral sound.
“Orchesography, is an orchestra-boosted version of their best-known tracks, featuring the first single, ‘Dance Hall Days,’ as well as ‘Everybody Have Fun Tonight’ and ‘Let’s Go'” according to the release.
Wang Chung reformed in 2010 for the first time in 20 years, following its resurgence, the band went on a number of successful world tours and released the Tazer Up album in 2012. You can check out the brand new, orchestral version of “Dance Hall Days” below.
