Peter Gabriel‘s three soundtrack albums Birdy, Passion and Long Walk Home will be issued on audiophile quality 45RPM vinyl pressings in July.
As with the previous studio albums, all three albums have been Half-Speed Remastered and cut to lacquers at 45RPM.
Birdy was the soundtrack to the Alan Parker film and was issued in 1985. It was the first time Gabriel had worked with Daniel Lanois, who went on to co-produce both So and Us.
Passion (1989) was recorded as the soundtrack to Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ although Peter continued to work on the music after the film’s release, so this sits somewhere between soundtrack and studio album.
Long Walk Home (2002) is an album based on the music from the Phillip Noyce’s film Rabbit-Proof Fence. This is the first time it has been made available on vinyl.
Passion is a triple album (music on five sides and an etching on the sixth) while the other two are doubles. music on five sides and a special etching on the sixth side. All albums come with a download card with a choice of digital download (hi-res 24bit or 16bit).
Birdy, Passion and Long Walk Home are issued on 45RPM vinyl on 28 July 2017.
