80s hitmakers, OMD who reformed in 2006 to begin a second chapter of their career, released their new single Night Café this week. The single’s bundle collection features “Kill Me,” which has been hinted to be OMD’s last song ever (maybe?). Lead singer/bassist Andy McCluskey said of the track “Kill Me was actually one of the first ideas that we had for the songs that would form the English Electric collection. I mentioned to Paul that it would be interesting to try a looped vocal idea something like our old song 4-Neu, and suggested the words ‘kill me.’ It seems appropriate that we close this chapter of Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark with this beautiful song. There is a wonderful future if you choose it: we just do not know where it will lead us.”
Is “Kill Me” a great track to end a career with?
