Empire State Human was taken from their debut album Reproduction as the only single. Both single and album were deemed a commercial failure (but when the single was re-released in 1980 it did get to #62 in the charts and the album as well was re-issued in 1981 and spent 23 weeks on the chart eventually peaking in 1982 at #34).
It wasn't until 1981 that the group finally began to get some chart success (Sound of the Crowd #12, Love Action (I Believe in Love) #3, Open Your Heart #6, and Don't You Want Me #1) and the following five years there would be a further 7 singles make the Top 20 (Being Boiled (re-issue) #6, Mirror Man #2, (Keep Feeling) Fascination #2, The Lebanon #11, Life On Your Own #16, Louise #13, and Human #8).
Whilst not been overly keen on everything that The Human League put out The Lebanon and Empire State Human are my absolute favourites of theirs.
