New Gold Dream (81–82–83–84) is the fifth studio album by Scottish band Simple Minds. The album was released in September 1982 by record label Virgin, and was a turning point for the band as they gained critical and commercial success in the UK and Europe. New Gold Dream originated in Simple Minds' unexpected popular and commercial success during an Australian tour with Icehouse, following the release of Sons and Fascination.
New Gold Dream robs me of my breath. Paul Morley, NME 1982. Originally released in September 1982, NEW GOLD DREAM (81-82-83-84) was Simple Minds’ fifth studio album and their crossover – the one that took them from revered cult status to a chart band with pop singles, launching their career worldwide. Featuring the n. 3 and n. 6 singles ‘Promised You A Miracle’ and ‘Glittering Prize’, it turned the band into a major force in pop music, reaching n. in the UK Albums Chart and spending a full year there.

This album harks the darker side of the band's musicianship, and such material alludes to their forthcoming pop-stadium sound which hurled them into rock mainstream during the latter part of the '80s. They were still honing their artistic rowdiness, and Kerr's pursuing vocals were still hiding. But Simple Minds' skill of tapping into internal emotion is profound on songs such as "Someone, Somewhere in Summertime" and the album's title track.
