André Cymone’s childhood friend and one-time bandmate, Prince, once described him as being heaven sent. Having grown up together and lived together, Cymone played bass for Prince’s backing band in the days before it was called The Revolution. But by 1981 he went solo, signing with Columbia Records and launching a career as a New Wave/Funk artist.
LIVIN’ IN THE NEW WAVE was Cymone’s debut solo LP in 1982 and see’s him not only writing but also producing all the songs on this groundbreaking album. It laid the groundwork for his hit single, The Dance Electric, as well as further production work most notably with future wife Jody Watley. He went on to produce her two R&B #1 tracks Looking For A New Love and Real Love.
LIVIN’ IN THE NEW WAVE was the debut single from the album and KELLY’S EYES was the follow up. Both singles made headway on the US R&B charts in 1982 and began building a strong fan base that remains to this day.
