Belinda Carlisle Releases New Single

She knew it back in 1987, when Heaven Is A Place On Earth first sky-rocketed her solo career worldwide and added yet another string to her bow as lead singer of the Go-Gos, one of the most successful female bands of all time. And she knows it in 2013, with the digital only release of brand new single Sun via Edsel on the 1 July 2013.
Written by LA singer/songwriter/producer Gabe Lopez (New Kids On The Block, American Idol), Belinda Carlisle and fellow Go-Go Jane Wiedlin, produced, with modern electro sensibilities by Lopez and Ian Masterson.

Coated with Belinda’s glorious, soaring, instantly identifiable vocals Sun is a stunning reminder of Carlisle’s timeless appeal as one of pop’s true survivors.

It’s 35 years since the punk-influenced Californian teenager sat on the kerb of a Hollywood sidewalk drinking beers with her gal pals and set about forming a band.

Three years later, the Go-Gos not only had the number one album in America with Beauty and the Beat which included the smash hits We Got The Beat and Our Lips Are Sealed, but had broken down the door for every female guitar band that followed.

As Q magazine noted, ‘Before riot grrrl, before ‘girl power’ before ladette culture had a name, there was the Go-Gos.’ Rolling Stone went even further calling them, ‘the world’s best female rock band.’
