New-wave pioneers Devo have reformed and renamed themselves Devo 2.0, but positioned to appeal to children this time
World music industry will be more crowded as there emerges music group Devo from its long hiatus. By now, the group is focusing their music to children. Thus, all five members of Devo regrouped to re-record some of its best known songs to be included in their upcoming album "Divo 2.0" due March 17 next year via Disney Sound, a family-oriented division of Walt Disney Records.
The set will among others include the 1980 hit "Whip It!" with vocals provided by a quintet of kids, "Cyclops" and "The Winner," the first new studio tracks from Devo in nearly two decades. There will also be a companion DVD featuring animated and live-action videos for each of the tracks directed by Devo bassist Gerry Casale.
