Dexys Midnight Runners Reunite

By Tom Breihan / February 10, 2012

Over here, Dexys Midnight Runners are known as those guys in overalls who sang “Come On Eileen,” and they’re staples of those One Hit Wonders countdowns that still show up on VH1 every once in a while, though. In their native England, though, the band were considered to be a great and serious soul-revival crew who had a ton of hits in the early-to-mid ’80s. The band broke up in 1986, and there’s been stalled-out talk of reunions since. But NME reports that the band is finally back together and ready to release its fourth album. They’re also planning to tour, and they’ve posted the first two minutes of their new album’s first song, which you can hear below.

I swear on my knees, that sounded pretty great.
