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's own label Divine Comedy Records on
August 21st, 2020
Liberation was the band's first full album. Released in 1993 it achieved few
sales but plenty of critical acclaim. The NME described it as “an array of
seductive yarns.. glorious, gleeful tunesmanship." Dave Cavanagh, writing
in Select said "..one of the bountiful, overflowing joys of the year. Any
year." Melody Maker described it as "An album that could make any listener
want to stumble up to him and proclaim ‘Neil, you're a genius'". Tracks such
as Your Daddys Car, Europop, and Lucy are fan favourites still
performed live by the band to this day while Pop Singers Fear Of The
Pollen Count was released as a single from the 1999 "Best Of.“
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
