PREFAB SPROUT to release remastered vinyl version of 3 classic albums + ‘A Life of Surprises: The Best Of’ hits collection out September 27th

Prefab Sprout

Off the back of the incredible latest album ‘I Trawl The Megahertz‘, Prefab Sprout has announced exciting release plans for remastered vinyl versions of three of the band’s classic albums along with their incredible greatest hits collection ‘A Life of Surprises: The Best Of’ – out September 27th. From the remastering and artwork to sourcing new images, the project has been fully orchestrated by both Paddy and Martin McAloon.

The releases include Prefab Sprout’s debut album ‘Swoon’ – a complex collection of songs that announced the band’s idiosyncratic style in an explosive way, as well as their third album ‘From Langley Park To Memphis’, containing their biggest hit “The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll” along with one of the best pop anthems of the 1980s – “Cars And Girls”. The album also features contributions from Stevie Wonder and Pete Townshend.

The band will also include the release of ‘Jordan: The Comeback’ from 1990 as a double LP for the first time internationally. This is an expansive album that draws on a huge breadth of influences and includes “Wild Horses”, which was not a single, but has grown to become one of the band’s best loved tracks.

Finally, the fourth part in this batch is the band’s hit collection, ‘A Life of Surprises: The Best Of’ which is available as a double LP for the first time.

The full package comes remastered and available as digital versions. Format details below:
