The New York band's debut album will be reissued with stacks of 'forgotten material'
Interpol‘s debut album ‘Turn On The Bright Lights’ will be re-released this autumn to mark its tenth anniversary.
A deluxe edition of the New York band’s influential debut will be reissued in November, featuring previously unreleased tracks from b-sides and demos, live video footage and photos.
Tracks featured on the vinyl edition include ‘Get The Girls/Song 5’, ‘PDA’ and ‘Roland’ from 2001’s ‘First Demo’. Other tracks include ‘Precipitate’, and the original versions of ‘Song Seven’ and ‘A Time To Be So Small’ from 2002’s ‘Second Demo’. An early version of ‘Gavilan/Cubed’ from 2002’s ‘Third Demo’ and the b-sides ‘Specialist’ and ‘Interlude’ will feature too.
A statement from the band reads: “We never could have imagined that the album would have reached so many people throughout the world.”
“We spent a good deal of time this past year digging through our archives and asking others to dig through theirs in the hopes of uncovering some forgotten material,” it says.
The statement continues: “The result of our hunting and gathering has yielded this Tenth Anniversary Edition of ‘Turn On The Bright Lights. We wanted to do something special for the fans who have always supported us. We wanted to do something special for the best fans in the world. We hope you enjoy it.”
