It's been seven years since English synth-pop heavyweights The Human League's last LP, 2001's Secrets. The band has been in studio recording new material, but their lack of a record label is a big obstruction to that material's release.
"We've always been supported by record companies and that's not really happening to as many groups anymore," said singer Joanne Catherall. "We'll have to find another way of getting it out to the public."
Catherall continued, "We're all keen to put out new music, our only problem is, the way we have traditionally put out music is not available to us anymore."
I don't know if Human League has noticed, but the current musical landscape is littered with non-traditional ways to release music. Take your pick.
