This Mortal Coil : 4AD Launches Web Store With This Mortal Coil Boxset
19th September 2011

Today, 4AD launches its online US store - http://shopusa.4ad.com. All current and most back catalogue releases will be available from the site, alongside a number of exclusive offers and releases. To coincide with the launch, 4AD is able to offer details of a new This Mortal Coil boxset, available to pre-order now.

This Mortal Coil – HDCD Box Set

On November 8th (US) / 14th (UK), 4AD will be issuing a boxset of all three This Mortal Coil albums. Each record has been re-mastered from the original analogue studio tapes by John Dent at Loud Mastering, to achieve the best digital sound available today.

Additionally there is a fourth album, Dust & Guitars, that compiles all the singles, including an unreleased one that was to have been part of the Rough Trade Singles Club and features the otherwise unavailable recording of Neil Young's 'We Never Danced'.

The HDCD albums are packaged in paper sleeves printed to the highest standard by the Ichikudo company in Japan, along with inner sleeves and booklets. They are released in a very limited edition box set, with the box itself a deluxe two-piece.

The official three albums have re-designed sleeves by Ivo Watts-Russell and Vaughan Oliver, 4AD's long time visual partner, which cater to the reduced size, feature gatefold sleeves, and remain inspired by the originals. The fourth album, which won't be available to general retail outside the box set, incorporates unseen images of Pallas Citroën, the 'face' of This Mortal Coil.
