Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD), electronic music pioneers and one of Britain’s best-loved pop groups, release a Record Store Day exclusive 12” single on coloured vinyl on June 12th, to celebrate an incredible 40 years of their signature song ‘Enola Gay’.

The single features a remix from Mercury Prize nominated band Hot Chip and acclaimed DJ/producer Theo Kottis.

Recorded at Ridge Farm Studios in Dorking, and released on September 26th, 1980, ‘Enola Gay’ was the only single from the band’s second studio album  ‘Organisation’.

Lyrically detailing the atomic bombing on Hiroshima during World War II by the B29 Superfortress aircraft, the song scored a UK Top 10 on the singles charts and went on to become an international success, selling more than 5 million copies worldwide and ingraining itself as a synth pop classic and arguably OMD’s signature track.

The band will perform a special live streamed show from London’s Indigo at The O2 on June 19th – set to raise money and awareness for their crew, whose livelihoods have been so affected in the wake of the global Covid-19 pandemic. OMD will also embark on their ‘Architecture and More’ tour next year where they will perform songs from their iconic album ‘Architecture & Morality’, plus many more hits from their legendary back catalogue.
