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
albums.
The reissues will be released by Neil Hannon's own label Divine Comedy Records
on August 21st, 2020.
Regeneration was originally released in 2001. Recorded with Radiohead
producer Nigel Godrich, the album was a more stripped back, guitar-oriented
affair, and a big break with their trademark orchestral sound. The Observer
said: "Regeneration marks, for Hannon, a personal and musical
breakthrough". Time Out said: "Hannon has finally created an album as
complete and deftly wondrous as you suspected he was capable of; every track
shines with a love for music." The Times said "A subtle collection of gorgeous
pop songs. Combining the lyrical dexterity of old with some spectacular
melodies, this is an album that lives up to the promise of its title". Key tracks
from the album include singles Love What You Do, Bad
Ambassador and Perfect Lovesong.
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.
