"Brand New Lover" is a song recorded by the British band Dead or Alive. It was the first single to be released from the band's third album, Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know. It achieved international success when released as a single in 1986.
The song proved to be more successful in the U.S. and in Japan than in the band's native UK, where reached #31. In the US, "Brand New Lover" peaked at #15 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, and spent two weeks atop the American dance chart in December 1986.
The lyrics describe the singer's desire to leave his current partner for one who is more exciting. His motivation is that he admittedly does not desire a stable relationship with one partner, but rather is "a pleasure seeker."
