Eurythmics are a British musical duo, formed in 1980 by Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart.
The pair have achieved significant global, commercial and critical success, selling 75 million records worldwide, winning numerous awards, and have undertaken several successful world tours. They are noted for their intelligent pop songs, which showcase Lennox's powerful and expressive alto voice, and Stewart's innovative production techniques. They are also acclaimed for their promotional videos and visual presentation.
In 1992, Lennox released her first solo album, Diva. The album was a critical and popular success, reaching no.1 in the UK and achieving a string of hit singles
Stewart released solo albums in 1995 (see 1995 in music), Greetings from the Gutter, and 1998 (see 1998 in music), Sly-Fi; but neither of these albums were commercially successful. Lennox's Medusa, an album of covers, fared much better and reached number one in the UK.
