Gone to the Moon is an album by British pop rock / new wave band Kajagoogoo. It was recorded in 2007 and early 2008, by the Kaja trio shortly before the original band was officially reunited. The tour for the album featured the entire original band. The album was downloadable on MP3 format for free until February 2009 and released shortly after on CD-R. The record seems to follow the tracks of 1984 Islands, also realized without Limahl; and it bears strong resemblances to the latter Love Is Blind (Germany only - 1994).
