"Babylon" is the first single taken from the forthcoming new full length album "Glavany Ways" featuring Craig Walker (ex-Archive) and Urdur (GusGus). The EP comes along with two special "Babylon" versions including the radio single version and the extended club mix plus the non-album track "Changes"!

One of the stand-out songs on the album is "Babylon", a 90's Manchester inspired anthem that was finished as the very last piece of the album. For the backing vocals Urdur, the singer of Iceland's favorites GusGus, was invited to complete the song. It became clear very soon that this was going to be be the first single. "Babylon is about how in a relationship one person can be totally destroyed by the other with just words or in fact a single phrase. The lyrics are a conversation between two people in a relationship. They still love each other but can't help destroying each other sometimes with words - we've all been there! People are ultimately very delicate no matter how physically strong they may be.“ (Craig Walker)

For the single format Booka Shade created 2 special versions of the song. A much shorter, more instant Single Version and a longer, club friendly Extended Mix, inspired by classic 80s 12inch releases. Every single from the album will also feature an unreleased exclusive song, again inspired by the traditional idea of a B-Side. In this case it´s the wonderful „Changes“, another collaboration with Craig Walker.

GALVANY STREET marks the return to their pop roots in collaboration with former Archive singer Craig Walker and a few additional guests like Urdur (GusGus), Australian Yates and Daniel Spencer from London.

"I was aware of the band before we started working together and really liked everything I had heard. I was introduced to the guys by Martin Eyerer one of the Riverside owners. Martin was really enthusiastic about us meeting as he felt we would have a lot in common musically and he was right. We met up in Riverside and we discussed music we liked past and present and we had very similar tastes. I listened to their back catalogue and was really impressed with how great everything was produced and I loved how melodically driven everything they did was." (Craig Walker)

Booka Shade will embark on a European Tour in April to support the release of the new album. For the first time in their career, Booka Shade will be joined on stage by singer Craig Walker.
"We're very proud to have reached a lot with instrumental music. With MOVEMENTS 10 we closed a chapter last year. 2017 is the perfect time for a new start and to mix things up." (Walter Merziger)

"GALVANY STREET is the album we wanted to write for a long time. The collaboration with Craig Walker brings in the perfect kind of vocals to complete the music." (Arno Kammermeier)
