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
Promenade, originally released in 1994, loosely recounts a day in the life of a pair
of friends / siblings / lovers. It was an immediate hit with the critics and catapulted
Neil to early notoriety in France. The Melody Maker said "'Promenade' is music hall,
cool French films, late nights in a bygone city, sea-shanties swelled by alcohol..
‘Promenade' walks the path of indulgence with bravado and a mischievous grin. A
stolen masterpiece." Q picked it as one of its best albums of '94 and described it
as "One of the most unexpected and original treasures of the year." Reviewing for
Select, Stuart Maconie said "'Promenade' is a masterpiece. If you do one brave and
imaginative thing this month, be on the side of the angels and buy this
record." Stand out tracks include Dont Look Down, The
Summerhouse and Tonight We Fly, the song with which, to this day, the band
close every live set.
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.
