*Happiness Now Completed CD

Soft Cell followed up 2022’s acclaimed Top 10 long player *Happiness not included with the release of two expanded editions via BMG on 28th July.

*Happiness now extended is a limited-edition double vinyl album, featuring longer versions of all twelve tracks from the original May 2022 release, and including the singles – airplay smash Purple Zone (with Pet Shop Boys), Bruises On All My Illusions and Nostalgia Machine.  It also sees the inclusion for the first time on vinyl one of the album’s highlights ‘Nighthawks’, with New York performance artist CHRISTEENE.  Restricted to 1000 copies, it is available to pre-order now from

So fruitful also were the original *Happiness not included sessions that the CD version of the album, subtitled *Happiness now completed features ten brand new Marc Almond and Dave Ball tracks, plus unreleased mixes, remixes and single-only tracks.  The new 78-minute set fits snugly into to the rear section of the original *Happiness not included CD book format, with no versions on the vinyl duplicated on the CD.  Both formats also feature brand new sleeve designs.  A sticker with the tracklisting details is also included to stick on the rear inside flap.

The album also includes a newly re-recorded version of fan favourite Last Chance, with the addition of a full brass section, plus cover versions of Fad Gadget’s Back To Nature and X-Ray Spex’s The Day The World Turned Day Glo.
