Berlin+ support

"New music is the lifeblood of anybody making musicó itís that creation, excitement, new babies [songs]! It inspires me and it inspires others," declares Terri Nunn, the charismatic and enigmatic singer of L.A.ís iconic synth electro-pop pioneers, BERLIN.

Terri Nunn, John Crawford (Bass), and David Diamond (keyboards), the original multi-platinum selling Berlin band members, who first made a national impression 40 years ago with the single "The Metro" and the provocative single, "Sex(Iím A..) have recorded a new album, their first since 1984ís LOVE LIFE. TRANSCENDANCE will be released on August 2nd. It will be the trioís fourth studio album together. The album is being produced by ARIA award-winning Australian producers Andy and Thom Mak.

As the band celebrates their 40th anniversary this year, they will take their new and classic music out on tour with their own headlining dates and supporting dates with the B-52ís in the US before heading to the UK and Europe for a headline tour.

BERLIN will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics. Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves. The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative single "Sex (I'm A...)" from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. "The Metro" and "No More Words" were also chart toppers, but it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, "Take My Breath Away" that took the band to another level. The balladís defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLINís everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for "Best Original Song" in 1986.

The band released its seventh studio album, Animal, in 2013. Animal explored contemporary electronic dance music while remaining true to the groundbreaking sound and Nunnís signature vocals that continue to define BERLIN. Animal was the result of Nunnís re-ignited love affair with current electronic music, and the feeling that BERLIN could make a unique statement in the EDM [electronic dance music] milieu. "Itís still my favorite medium. Iíve loved it since I met John [Crawford, original Berlin bassist) in 1979, when he wanted to bring electronic music to America, because it wasnít here yet," she recalls. "What itís morphing into is exciting me so much, I was motivated to look for songwriting partners to help us initial impression on the music world in 1982, with their seductive single, "Sex (Iím AÖ)," from the platinum- certified debut EP Pleasure Victim. BERLINís first full length LP, Love Life, hit in 1984 and was certified gold. In 1986, BERLIN topped the charts with the unforgettable, intimate and strikingly beautiful love song, "Take My Breath Away." The balladís defining role in the Tom Cruise film Top Gun has also helped solidify BERLINís everlasting place in American pop-culture. Nunnís ongoing influence earned her the #11 spot on VH1.comís "100 Greatest Women in Rock," while, as an actress, she played leading roles in films including Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold with Kim Basinger, and Thank God Itís Friday with Jeff Goldblum and Debra Winger.

Video was very important to early hits like "Sex (I'm A...)" and "The Metro"ó has also taken on new meaning for BERLIN. "YouTube is the new MTV," Nunn notes. "We used to spend so much money on mini movies, but now all you need is a good HD camera and a guy who knows some lighting. Online is where people go to see and hear musicóitís free and itís easy and so wonderful." Nunnís honesty and infectious enthusiasm carries through every aspect of Animal, which she views as an entirely new chapter. "I always looked at music as passion. All we can do is appreciate that peopleís passion is so strong for music... I feel it too, itís part of my DNA, and I love what I grew up with. What I learn as I get older," she concludes, "is that itís not about money or Ďmaking it.í Sure, theyíre fun games, but itís about connection, thatís where the real joy, passion and bliss comes from, and music is such a huge part of connecting people. Itís the wayÖ to bliss."

BERLINís discography has yielded twelve gold and platinum album awards. The bandófounded by Nunn, bassist John Crawford, and keyboard player David Diamondómade its everlasting place in American pop-culture. Nunnís ongoing influence earned her the #11 spot on VH1.comís "100 Greatest Women in Rock," while, as an actress, she played leading roles in films including Katie: Portrait of a Centerfold with Kim Basinger, and Thank God Itís Friday with Jeff Goldblum and Debra Winger. Along with comedienne, Wendy Liebman, Nunn also previously hosted the critically acclaimed radio show Unbound with Terri Nunn on 88.5 FM KCSN Los Angeles.
