  • Here's to Future Days is the fifth studio album by the British pop group Thompson Twins. It was the third and final release for the band as a trio, which was their most successful and recognisable line-up. Released in September 1985, it peaked at no. 5 in the UK, and no. 20 in the US. Before the album's release, the Thompson Twins performed at Live Aid in July 1985, where they revealed their new material by playing a rock oriented version of the Beatles' song "Revolution". The band were also joined onstage for this number by Rodgers himself, Madonna, and guitarist Steve Stevens. Although the album was a chart success in the UK and the US, it was considerably less successful than their previous album Into the Gap. Subsequent singles from the album also met with mixed results. The new Nile Rodgers-produced version of "Lay Your Hands on Me" (now with a more distinct gospel sound) reached No. 6 in the United States, while the next UK single "Don't Mess With Doctor Dream" reached No. 15. "King for a Day" followed in both markets, peaking at No. 8 in the US and becoming their third and final Top 10 hit there, but only reaching No. 22 in the UK. The aforementioned "Revolution" was also released as a single in the UK, but failed to make the top 40, signifying an end to the Thompson Twins' commercial viability there. The US and Canadian pressing of the vinyl album does not include the track "Breakaway" but contained a new, Nile Rodgers-produced version of the track "Roll Over", though the song was omitted altogether in all other countries. The US and Canadian cassette and CD versions of the album contain both "Roll Over" and "Breakaway". (en)

  • Here's to Future Days är den brittiska gruppen Thompson Twins femte album, utgivet den 17 september 1985. Det nådde 5:e plats på brittiska albumlistan och 20:e plats i USA. Albumet låg nio veckor på Sverigetopplistan med som bäst en 7:e plats i oktober 1985. Inspelningen av albumet påbörjades sent 1984 tillsammans med som producerat gruppens föregående album Quick Step and Side Kick och Into the Gap. Singeln Lay Your Hands on Me gavs ut i november, men under inspelningen av albumet drabbades sångaren Tom Bailey av ett sammanbrott vilket gjorde att arbetet med albumet sköts upp och en planerad singel, Roll Over, som redan börjat distribuerats till butikerna, drogs tillbaka. Senare började gruppen om med nya inspelningar tillsammans med Nile Rodgers, som producerade albumet tillsammans med Tom Bailey och även bidrog med gitarrspel på flera låtar. Strax innan albumets utgivning släpptes singeln Don't Mess with Doctor Dream som nådde 15:e plats på den brittiska singellistan och i Sverige tog sig in på Trackslistan. Here's to Future Days innehåller även hitsingeln King for a Day, en ny version av Lay Your Hands on Me samt en coverversion av Beatles-låten Revolution, som gruppen tidigare framfört på Live Aid-konserten i juli 1985. År 2008 återutgavs Here's to Future Days som dubbel-cd med alla 12"-versioner, remixer och b-sidor. (sv)
