Berlin will release a new studio album called Strings Attached on November 27 that features the 1980s New Wave band revisiting a variety of their best-known songs with accompaniment from a full philharmonic orchestra.

The 12-track collection includes reimagined versions of songs spanning the group’s entire career, including symphonic renditions of the chart-topping 1986 ballad “Take My Breath Away,” from the Top Gun soundtrack; the top-30 1984 hit “No More Words”; and the early-’80s gems “The Metro,” “Sex (I’m A…)” and “Masquerade.”

Berlin’s current lineup features the band’s three core founding members — frontwoman Terri Nunn, bassist John Crawford and keyboardist David Diamond.

Berlin’s most recent previous album, Transcendence, was released in 2019.
