Almond, 48, was riding as pillion passenger on the bike when it was involved in an accident with a car on Sunday afternoon in London's financial district.
Almond suffered severe head injuries and motorbike driver was also badly hurt, police said.
"Both the motorcycle rider and the pillion passenger are in hospital. The rider has severe injuries and the pillion passenger is critical," a spokesman for City of London police said.
"City of London Police are investigating the collision. We can confirm that one of the parties was Soft Cell's Marc Almond," he added.
"Tainted Love", a cover version of a 1964 song by soul singer Gloria Jones, was the biggest hit for synthesiser duo Soft Cell, becoming the top selling single of 1981 in Britain, also remaining an astonishing 43 weeks in the US pop charts.
In recent years, Almond has mainly recorded as a solo artist, attracting a smaller but loyal following.
