To coincide with Lush’s first live shows in almost twenty years a limited LP boxset, collecting the band’s five albums released between 1990 and 1996 on 4AD, will be released as part of Record Store Day on 16th April 2016.
Entitled Origami, the box contains the group’s three albums Spooky (1992), Split (1994) and Lovelife (1996) and the singles compilations Gala (1990) and Topolino (1996). All have been out of print since the nineties except Topolino, which has never before been available on vinyl.
All five LPs are being pressed on a different colour of vinyl and will come housed in a beautiful laminated box as designed by long-time associate and former v23 collaborator Chris Bigg. Download codes for each album are also included in the boxset. The full tracklisting for Origami can be found here.
Origami is exclusive to Record Store Day and will be available in participating independent record stores only from April 16th. Coincidentally, Lush’s new EP Blind Spot (their first record in 20 years) is being released day earlier on the 15th (except in the US where it’s out on the 22nd), and you can watch the video for ‘Out of Control’ and pre-order the record direct from the band at www.lushofficial.com.
Lush begin touring in April with a show at the Roxy in Los Angeles on the 14th prior to the band playing Coachella Festival on the 16th. For all upcoming dates, please visitwww.lushofficial.com/tour.
Also due to huge demand, the CD boxset of Chorus which was released late last year and sold out immediately has been remanufactured and can be bought from the 4AD store now.
