Forever Now is the third studio album by the English rock band The Psychedelic Furs. The Furs were augmented by producer Todd Rundgren's house horn section and Flo & Eddie. The album was released in September 1982 on the CBS Records label. It featured the hit single "Love My Way." It was reissued with bonus tracks in 2002 by Columbia/Legacy. The reissue also used Barney Bubbles' original album cover design. When originally released in the U.S. in 1982, Columbia changed the UK album cover to a red-tinted design to imitate the design of the previous album Talk Talk Talk. The song, "Love My Way" has appeared in several movies and videogames including Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, The Wedding Singer, Valley Girl and as downloadable content for the Rock Band series. The album is scheduled for reissue on vinyl in the UK on 22 August 2011.
