Dexys Midnight Runners – now known simply as Dexys are set to release their first album in 27 years.

‘One Day I’m Going To Soar’ will be out on June 4 and makes for their first release since 1985’s ‘Don’t Stand Me Down’. The band announced the news via their Facebook page.

They added that they are currently looking at venues for a forthcoming tour in support of the record. They also posted a link to a YouTube clip called ‘Now – The first 2 minutes of the new Dexys album’. Scroll down to listen to the audio, which is accompanied by new press shots of the band.

Dexys released their three studio albums in the first half of the 1980s, with their debut, ‘Searching For The Young Soul Rebels’, in 1980, ‘Too-Rye-Ay’ in 1982 and ‘Don’t Stand Me Down’ in 1985.

The band’s frontman Kevin Rowland became a solo artist in the late 1980s but in 2003, Dexys reunited for a tour and the release of a greatest hits album, which featured two new songs.

A new album has been touted by Rowland since 2005.
