Over the next few days we’ll be celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the release of the Eurythmics We Too Are One Album.
We Too Are One was the seventh studio album released by Eurythmics on 11th September 1989. It turned out to be the last studio release for a decade until 1999’s Peace.
The cover featured the two pictures above taken by renowned photographer Jean Baptiste Mondino.
When it was released in 1989, the album went straight to number one in the UK, where it has since been certified double platinum. The album produced four singles, all of which reached the UK top 30: “Revival”, “Don’t Ask Me Why”, “The King and Queen of America”, and “Angel”. In the United States, “(My My) Baby’s Gonna Cry” was also released as a single but failed to chart.
A companion home video, We Two Are One Too, was released in 1990 and featured the promotional videos for the five singles from the album and other footage of the band performing the album’s other tracks. This is actually the only commercial release of the promo video for the 1989 single “Revival”, which was never included on any subsequent video compilations from the band.
