The world of pop music changed forever on January 12th, 1984: It was the day when ALPHAVILLE released their debut single Big in Japan, the first giant step on the band’s way to global stardom. The song not only shot straight to #1 on the charts in Germany, Sweden, Switzerland and the US Billboard Dance charts, but also effortlessly dominated the Top 10 in the UK and many other countries across the globe. It was just the beginning of a much bigger adventure! After their globally successful first single, Marian Gold, Bernhard Lloyd and Frank Mertens recorded their debut album Forever Young that enjoys international popularity to this day.
On March 15th, 2019, the legendary album will be released as a Super Deluxe Edition comprising three CDs, one DVD and vinyl, a Deluxe 2-CD set with the original singles, b-sides and 12” versions and as a Vinyl LP. All formats feature the first-ever remastered version of the album.
Even before the album was released, the band unveiled their second single Sounds Like a Melody that topped the charts in Sweden yet again and reached the Top 10 in several European countries. The title track Forever Young was released along with the album on September 27th, 1984. Since then the track has become one of the greatest pop anthems of all time. It will be hard to name another track that has been covered as frequently across all genres (by Imagine Dragons, rapper Jay-Z or Kim Wilde) or included as often in movies and TV series. Forever Young the album hit the Top 20 in six European countries, went triple Gold in Germany and was awarded a Swedish Rockbjörnen as “best foreign album”. 
ALPHAVILLE vocalist Marian Gold says: “My musical career actually kicked off with a kicking out. When ‘Big in Japan’ had been released and stormed the charts all over Europe in the blink of an eye I was still busy in this restaurant kitchen in Münster peeling potatoes. And the cook said: ‘Boy, they're playing your song on the radio every hour.’ And then he threw me out.” 
The album’s Super Deluxe Version comes equipped with a high-quality remastered version of the album and lots of additional material. CD 1 features the remastered original album, including Big in Japan, Sounds Like a Melody and Forever Young. CD 2 presents the original single versions, B-sides and 12” singles. CD 3 contains 16 rare demos and alternative versions as well as some of Alphaville’s early compositions in German language. The DVD features the 60-minute documentary “Never Grow Up – The Story of Forever Young”, including current interviews with Marian Gold, Bernhard Lloyd and the original album producers Colin Pearson and Wolfgang Loos among others, as well as the original music videos to Forever Young, Big in Japan, The Jet Set and Sounds Like a Melody. 
The package is topped off by a 24-page, vinyl-sized booklet, created by the art director of the original album in close collaboration with the band itself, containing numerous rare and previously unreleased photos, liner notes, quotes and production notes by the band, its former A&R and the producers. 
“Producing the ‘Forever Young’ album back in the day was quite an adventure that brought about amazing results. We focused mainly on the vinyl album, seeing as CD mastering in 1984 was not yet as advanced. Luckily, I was able to dig up all of the original analogue master tapes that we had actually only recorded to be on the safe side. The newly mastered version of the album has a much warmer, rounder and more transparent sound, just as we had imagined back in the day,” says Bernhard Lloyd. 

The 2-CD Deluxe Version of Forever Young contains CD 1 and CD 2 of the Super Deluxe Edition. The remastered original album is also set to be released on 180 gram vinyl and will thus finally be available in LP form again. 

On the occasion of the band’s 35th anniversary, ALPHAVILLE will be touring Germany from March 15th through April 10th, 2019.
