The digital version of the “definitive” edition of ‘The Bonny’ is out today (November 13), while the CD and vinyl releases of the album will arrive on December 11.
‘Ghosts’, which Cinnamon explains “was written around the same time as ‘Kampfire Vampire’, ‘Fickle McSelfish’, and ‘Roll the Credits’, so it’s good to have them all on the same record”, has also been released today and you can hear it below.
Speaking about this new version of ‘The Bonny’, Cinnamon explained: “Been waiting a long time to get those tunes back. Should have been on the first album but that’s what happens when you trust the wrong people.”
This “definitive” version of ‘The Bonny’ features new artwork that was taken from the series used for the alternating covers on the original pressing of the album. You can see the new artwork below.

New definitive version of “The Bonny” Out Midnight. Featuring new single “Ghost” + new recordings of “Kampfire Vampire” & “Fickle McSelfish” Been waiting a long time to get those tunes back. Should have been on the first album but that’s what happens when you trust the wrong people. Ghost, Kampfire, Fickle and Roll the Credits were all written around the same time so it’s good to have them all on the same record. Hope everyone’s keeping mentally solid.

Reviewing ‘The Bonny’, NME’s Damian Jones said: “The outstanding ‘Where We’re Going’ reminds us of better times. A perfect partner to ‘Erratic Cinema’s ‘Sometimes’, this fist punching festival anthem in waiting is easily the best song on the album and the track that’ll constantly be on repeat on lockdown playlists.
“Elsewhere, the menacing Spaghetti Western infused ‘Mayhem’, shows how far the Glaswegian’s songwriting skills have come. Opening with a lo-fi mariachi strum, the track bursts into a thumping widescreen banger.”
