Interview: Howard Jones, New Wave icon and synth pioneer

In the early ’80’s the music of Howard Jones permeated the radio airwaves. Between 1983 and 1984 he had five top 10 songs, including “What Is Love,” “Things Can Only Get Better,” “Everlasting Love” and “No One Is To Blame.” His album Human’s Lib went double platinum. Jones attributes his early success to his pioneering use of synthesizers and the optimistic, self-empowering content of his lyrics. Jones believes that “songs can really lift your spirits” and that his early work “hit a chord with young people who were struggling.”
