As previously revealed, this album sees the band return to their peerless back catalogue to reinterpret thirteen of their most beloved songs with ‘strings and things’. The album also features two future classics – ‘The Somnambulist’ and ‘How Far?.’
Recorded at The Dog House Studios with co-producer Andy Wright, the Bunnymen hand-picked the selection of tracks for the album from their majestic, four-decade spanning archive. Frontman Ian McCulloch said of the new versions: “I’m not doing this for anyone else. I’m doing it as it’s important to me to make the songs better. I have to do it.”
The first track released from the album, ‘Seven Seas’ is available now to stream, download or as an instant grat with all album pre-orders via the artist store or iTunes. Seven Seas’ was originally a Top 20 hit in 1984, the third single from their classic fourth studio album Ocean Rain.
