New: Grace Jones – Nightclubbing Deluxe Remaster!

One of our all time favourite albums is getting the remaster treatment and an expansion. Grace Jones‘ iconic Nightclubbing originally set the world on fire in 1981, and for the first time bonus 12″ mixes and rarities, including two newly discovered tracks from the original sessions (eek!).

For those who don’t know, Nightclubbing was Grace Jones’ fifth studio album and basically helped develop the musical landscape as we know it now. Classic track, ‘Pull Up To The Bumper’ was a huge smash in clubs and the charts, quickly becoming a staple on the dance floor. The album took a radical take on funk, soul, reggae and new wave, providing sleek yet radical music that has truly become part of a musical legacy.

When we found out the album was going to be re-mastered our excitement levels were high (so much so, in fact, that we did the office chair dance). The album will be available on 1CD, 2CD Deluxe Edition, 2LP 180g Deluxe Edition vinyl (cut at Abbey Road), Blu-Ray audio and digital formats. There will also be a special 12″ to celebrate Record Store Day, which was cut at Abbey Road, featuring the previously unreleased Gary Numan/Tubeway Army cover ‘Me! I Disconnect From YOu’ and ‘Feel Up’.

The album will go on sale on April 28th and will be released via Island Records/Universal Music Catalogue and can be pre-ordered here!
