STARSAILOR announce a 20th-anniversary Deluxe Edition version of their debut album, Love Is Here

Starsailor are set to release a 20th-Anniversary Deluxe Edition version of their debut album, Love Is Here, on 10 December. The new edition of the classic debut is available to pre-order now.

Originally released in 2001, Love Is Here saw the band establish themselves as a force to be reckoned with, reaching No 2 in the UK album chart and winning them a worldwide fanbase. The album featured five UK Top 40 singles (Fever, Good Souls, Alcoholic, Lullaby and Poor Misguided Fool), with Alcoholic hitting No 10 in the chart.

The release features the original album with a bonus disc full of covers (songs by Bill Withers, Gram Parsons and Van Morrison); demos; session recordings; five brand-new, specially recorded 20th Anniversary Edition tracks; and newly written liner notes by the band.

Frontman James Walsh on the new versions featured: “With the new tracks we didn’t want to simply re-record the same versions so we worked on new arrangements & new sounds. Way To Fall is much more understated and gentle than the original but it works really well and Good Souls envokes the powerful song it’s turned into after numerous big live performances where it’s had to take on a larger life than the subtle studio recording on Love Is Here.”
