T’Pau return with new album, “Pleasure & Pain”

Named after a Star Trek character, T’Pau had a huge hit in 1987 with “Heart and Soul” (off their debut album, “Bridge of Spies”) While none of their other singles were successful in the US, internationally they had top 40 success with two other songs from that album, “China In Your Hand” and “Valentine.” They continued to chart in the UK, Ireland, and Germany, but never matched the success of “Bridge of Spies”. T’pau split in 1991 after the release of their third album, “The Promise.”

In 1998, vocalist/songwriter Carol Decker put together a new line-up of T’Pau to release a new album, “Red,” and perform live. In 2007, she re-united with original guitarist/songwriter Ron Rogers to release a single, “Just A Dream” and then in 2013 for a tour.

Decker recently completed a new T’Pau album, “Pleasure & Pain,” to be released in February 2015. The first single, ‘Nowhere,’ will be available to download on January 18th and a tour will begin on January 22nd.
