March 17, 2016

This summer, Grace Jones’ milestone 1980 album, “Warm Leatherette”, is getting a deluxe edition re-issue, courtesy of Island/UMC. The newly remastered collection will include the original tracks, their extended counterparts, remixes, b-sides, instrumentals, and rare, unreleased material. Set to be released on June 17, “Warm Leatherette” will be made available on several formats: 4LP, 2CD, Blu-Ray pure audio, digital and high-definition downloads—I’m going for those vinyls. Pre-order the LPs or CD.
