‘Fuse’ reignites Everything But The Girl after a decadeslong hiatus
What started as a casual experiment evolved into the U.K. duo’s first studio album in 24 years.
Everything But The Girl
- “Caution To The Wind”
- “Nothing Left To Lose”
By the second half of the ’90s, U.K. duo Everything But The Girl were international stars. Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt, who are romantic partners as well as bandmates, had a massive worldwide hit with 1994’s “Missing” Todd Terry remix, and they had continued to make dance music loved by clubgoers and critics alike.
But then real life happened. In this session, Tracey and Ben explain why they went on hiatus … and how they ended up making Fuse, their first album in 24 years.
