Lady from Shanghai  which Fire Records will be releasing in January 2013, marks two important milestones for the legendary Pere Ubu – it’s the first full-length album from the band, and 2013 marks the 35th anniversary of the band’s first release, The Modern Dance

“Free White” is the first single from Lady from Shanghai. Backed by swirling, glitchy electronics and angular guitar chords, the track has a moody, uneasy air that’s both incredibly contemporary and timeless. When you listen to a lot of contemporary artists and then to Pere Ubu, it shouldn’t be surprising that their influence has reverberated over the last couple of decades, really.
