Everything But the Girl Launch Reissue Campaign
Published Apr 05, 2012Following a reunion last fall, Brit sophisti-pop duo Everything But the Girl have announced plans to reissue some of their earliest albums as deluxe editions.
The act will deliver 1984's Eden, 1985's Love Not Money, 1986's Baby the Stars Shine Bright and 1988's Idlewild as double-CD/book sets on June 4 through the Edsel imprint. Tracklistings have yet to appear for any of the packages, but the second disc on each release is said to contain a mix of era-appropriate cuts culled from home recordings and BBC sessions.
The accompanying books, meanwhile, will feature lyrics, photos and notes submitted by band members Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt.
Despite the reissue campaign, Thorn and Watt haven't, however, announced any plans for any new material beyond their recent cover of the XX's "Night Time" for Thorn's EP of the same name.
