Featuring the late guitarist Andy Gill, who died earlier this year, the 4-track EP will be out on will arrive July 17th and feature a portrait of Gill on the cover, designed by Shepard Fairey. 

The band have also shared their new single "Forever Starts Now", co-written by Late Guitarist Andy Gill. Its original working title was “Hero,” a reference, John explains, to the lyrics about “a character who sees himself as the hero of his own life and manipulates his partner into supporting this fantasy. The line, ‘She sings along with his song / she thinks it’s like having the radio on…’ always brings a wry smile.”

The surviving members of Gang of Four, singer John Sterry, bassist Thomas McNeice and drummer Tobias Humble, have joined with Andy Gill’s widow Catherine Mayer to celebrate Andy through music. Proceeds from the EP benefit Guy’s and St Thomas NHS Foundation Trust, the English hospital network that took care of Andy in his final days.
