In 1990 Neil Hannon started recording and releasing under the name The Divine
Comedy. Thirty years and twelve great albums later, Hannon is rightly adjudged
one of the finest singer songwriters of his generation. To celebrate, Divine
Comedy Records are remastering and reissuing nine of the bands classic
The reissues will be released by Neil's own label Divine Comedy Records on
August 21st, 2020.
Casanova was the bands third album and the first to bring real success. First
released in 1996 it explored and dissected a world of casual affairs, loose morals
and a thousand anxieties in between. From the NME: "'Casanova' fairly teems
with sex, with suppressed desires.. with ample evidence of what dicks men can
be." Mojo described it as a "glorious.. sumptuous paean to life, love and
longing." Select said "Only a barren heart could resist it.. Sensible people simply
swooned." Singles Something For The Weekend, Becoming More Like
Alfie and The Frog Princess became chart hits and airplay staples while an
alternate version of Songs Of Love became the theme music for legendary
Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted.
the album has been remastered from the original tapes at the legendary Abbey
Road Studios by mastering engineer Frank Arkwright (Blur, The
Smiths.) Overseeing the audio throughout the campaign is
engineer/mixer/producer Guy Massey, whose work on the Beatles Stereo
Remasters won him a Grammy Award.
The CD release consists of 2 discs: the original remastered album, with a second
CD of B-sides, demos and alternate versions lovingly curated by Neil Hannon,
much of which has never been heard before. The CD comes with a booklet of
photos, credits and extensive liner notes written by Neil covering the context and
inspiration behind the album and its songs.
The LP release consists of the original remastered album, cut at Abbey Road,
packaged with a download code for the album and bonus tracks. The LP is
heavyweight black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve accompanied with photos, credits
and Neils liner notes
