The Cult partner Matt Glass said: ‘Adam Ant is a hugely iconic and much-loved British musician, and we’re incredibly excited to be representing him. We’re looking forward to introducing him to a new generation of music fans, to add to the legions of diehard supporters he’s kept since the 80s.’
Ant, who rose to fame as lead singer of post-punk group Adam and the Ants before embarking on a solo career, recently went through a well-documented battle with depression and bipolar disorder.
He will also perform at a series of festivals including Bestival and the Summer Sundae Weekender, as well as a tour of the UK and North America, fresh from a successful tour of Australia.
The release will be supported by a new film, The Blueblack Hussar, produced by The Klaxons bassist Jamie Reynolds.
The Cult will manage the print, TV and radio campaign for the comeback campaign.
