INFO > Alison Moyet’s acoustic cover of “Whispering Your Name” was produced by Ian Broudie for her 1994 album, “Essex.” The tune is a Jules Shear composition originally recorded for his 1983 debut LP. Vince Clarke’s remix marked his first association with Moyet since their collaboration as Yazoo in the early-80s.

Immediately following the release of “Whispering Your Name”, it was conjectured that the producers of the remixed single version—Johnny Nitrate and Steve Rocket—are in fact Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe. After nearly two decades, both Moyet and Tennant finally quashed the rumor in 2012, leaving the true identities of Nitrate and Rocket to remain a mystery.
