The album was released in September by record label Virgin , and was a turning point for the band as they gained critical and commercial success in the UK and Europe. New Gold Dream originated in Simple Minds' unexpected popular and commercial success during an Australian tour with Icehouse , following the release of Sons and Fascination.
The band was prompted by this experience to write " Promised You a Miracle " upon their return to Europe. In a interview, singer Jim Kerr recalled the production of the album as a wonderful time during the late spring and early summer of in which "everything we tried worked", adding: "There were no arguments.
We were in love with what we were doing, playing it, listening to it. You don't get many periods in your life when it all goes your way. The latter song proved pivotal to the musical direction of the album.
For the recording of the album producer Peter Walsh was recruited on the recommendation of guitarist Charlie Burchill, who had been impressed by Walsh's work on the remix of the band's previous single " Sweat in Bullet ". During the recording sessions it became evident that the band's drummer Mike Ogletree didn't hit the mark.
Walsh decided to recruit session drummer Mel Gaynor to play on the album and, following Ogletree's departure, Gaynor became a full-time member of the band. Jazz keyboardist Herbie Hancock guested on the album and plays a synthesizer solo on the song "Hunter and the Hunted". The title track saw a limited release in Italy, when the band visited the country during their tour in March Virgin Records reissued the album as a remastered edition in cardboard vinyl replica edition and early jewel-case.
Virgin also reissued the album on SACD in All the tracks except "Colours Fly and Catherine Wheel" and "Promised You a Miracle" whose multitrack tapes had apparently been lost were remixed in 5. There is also a bonus track, "In Every Heaven". The song had previously been lost, as it was not labelled on the master tape properly. In , Virgin Records issued a six-disc deluxe box set including the original album, single versions, alternative takes and demos, b-sides, radio sessions and a DVD with the 5.
The album received several positive reviews. New Gold Dream robs me of my breath. Now it not only takes its place among the greatest future-pop albums of the 80s Dare , The Lexicon Of Love , it sits comfortably among the greatest pop albums of all time.
It was a special time because we were really beginning to break through with that record, both commercially and critically. The people that liked that record connected with it in a special way.
