It's also been revealed that Spandau Ballet are working with iconic pop producer Trevor Horn, who has previously worked with Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Pet Shop Boys.

The group initially split in 1989, but managed to put their differences aside for a world tour in 2009.

Shortly afterwards, the boys released 'Once More', an album that largely consisted of re-worked versions of their classic tracks.

However, their new release will feature entirely original material and although a release date is still to be announced, their new documentary 'Soul Boys of the Western World' will be available in October.
