New York synth-driven duo Fischerspooner will release its debut album, "#1," Feb. 25 in North America via Capitol. The set will be accompanied by "DVD #1," which features Warren Fischer and Casey Spooner's own film work, music videos, a documentary, and performance footage. Capitol is touting the project as the first of its kind to be simultaneously released on both formats in one package.

The album includes the eight songs originally featured on a limited-edition CD sold in New York, augmented with a new Junkie XL remix of the European hit single "Emerge," and an "updated" version of that cut's music video.

As for the DVD, it will host the original clips for "Emerge" and "The 15th," and a short film entitled "Sweetness," along with seven video projections used during the duo's highly theatrical live performances.

"I never listened to any of the synth stuff in the '80s, and I'm not a huge fan of dance music; my background is in rock and classical," Fischer told Billboard this summer. "But I learned that something synthetic could be interesting. In the process, I discovered my own anti-electronic music statement."
