Listen to La Folie on Spotify

Today marks the 35th anniversary of the release of the band’s sixth studio album La Folie on 9th November 1981. Please click on the album cover image to hear the full album on Spotify…

La Folie was the band’s final studio album of their initial UA/Liberty EMI tenure and featured the legendary Toni Visconti on production duties, aided by Steve Churchyard. The album featured a far more accessible sound than its predecessor The Gospel According To… and it reached a UK chart peak of number 11. The first single chosen was the lengthily-titled, Mafia focused Let Me Introduce You To The Family, which sold disappointingly & only reached 42. It was followed by the album’s hidden Harpsichord gem Golden Brown which became a huge worldwide success (peaking at number 2 in The UK) despite concerns over its lyrical subject matter. The third and final single was the album’s title track La Folie, sung entirely in French and about a Parisian murder case, it unsurprisingly didn’t follow Golden Brown into the upper reaches of the chart. On the road, the album was promoted with a full UK tour through that November and a second, hastily arranged,one following the success of Golden Brown, in February of 1982.
