New Clear Days was The Vapors' 1980 debut album containing the UK single "Turning Japanese", which reached No. 3 in the chart in February 1980. A remix of "News at Ten" (named after the well-known ITV news programme), went to No. 45 in July of that year. A third single, a re-recording of "Waiting for the Weekend" that included a horn section, failed to chart.

AllMusic Review by Chris Woodstra

It's easy to dismiss this band as a one-hit wonder -- surely the album has nothing quite as infectious as the single, "Turning Japanese." New Clear Days is, however, a fine example of punchy Brit-pop in the vein of The Jam that holds up better than most albums from the period.
