The Specials release new single ‘Vote For Me’

The Specials, one of the most electrifying, influential, and important bands of all time, follow the announcement of ‘Encore,’ their first new album in 37 years, out February 1, with the release of their new single, ‘Vote For Me’ via UMC / Island Records.

‘Vote For Me,’ first new The Specials single since the band’s era-defining 1981 No. 1 single, ‘Ghost Town,’ was written and produced by founding members Terry Hall, Lynval Golding, Horace Panter together with long-time collaborator Torp Larsen and addresses the same social and political issues which were prevalent when the band formed in the late ‘70s.

2019 marks the 40th anniversary of the formation of The Specials and the legendary Two-Tone label in Coventry in 1979, and also marks 10 years since the band reformed to play some of the most vital and joyous live shows in recent memory.
