Dead Or Alive – Brand New Lover (US 12″)

Posted by DjPaulT on July 23rd, 2012

BURNING THE GROUND EXCLUSIVE 1986

“Brand New Lover” is the name of a song recorded by the British new wave band Dead or Alive. It was the first single to be released from the band’s third album, Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know. It achieved international success when released as a single in 1986. The song proved to be more successful in the U.S. and in Japan than in the band’s native U.K.; it peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, whereas the song reached #31 on the UK Singles Chart. In addition, “Brand New Lover” spent two weeks atop the American dance chart in December 1986.

The lyrics describe the singer’s desire to leave his current partner for one who is more exciting. His motivation is that he admittedly does not desire a stable relationship with one partner, but rather is “a pleasure seeker.”

The song became Dead or Alive’s second Top 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, as well as their first number-one single on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play chart. The song was a moderate international success.

    Many thanks for all the superb Dead or Alive stuff over the last few days. Love this song. Takes me back to the 80s when I hurried back from college to play the U.K. 12″. I love 80s mixes that extend them as long as possible without losing the integrity of the original version. The record is outstanding and so damn catchy. Still sounds fresh and exciting IMO.

    I’m glad Paul provided the track listing already. Here is the link if you wanna see the cover, other infos such as catalog number. I read from the PWL/Hit Factory Forum that Sony label was the one who cancelled it at the last minute. I don’t know if Pete Burns had anything to do with it also.

    Seems a weird thing to cancel.

    Didn’t Pete Burns sell all his publishing rights to fund his surgery (he said something like that on Celeb Big Brother). If so it wouldn’t be him cancelling it?

    OMG Paul, I was hoping you’d get to my favorite DoA song! Totally loving the series — thanks so much. There is going to be some booty-shaking around here! 😉

    Again, Thank you Paul. Looks like the DOA stuf is a HIT! So much for people getting board. Those 12″ tracks actually came out on a CD set called “Thats the way I like it” Very much the same tracklist. very cool to have those 12″ remixes on digital fotmat. Still yet, I cannot ever see myself unloading my vinyl EVER! There are special memories and time collecting those. Some were special ordered for a hefty price. Regarding the 7″ mix of BNL, that is on that CD set. From what I knew, it was only released as a 7″ single, played on the radio and was very much different than the edited 12″ version they chose to place on the album Mad Bad…..I think they should have included the 7″ vers on the album if you ask me.

    Could someone explain the names of the mixes?

    DjPaulT Reply:

    I know “Up Ducky” was the name of the horse in the video. Not sure about the other mix title.
