Massive Attack to Reissue ‘Blue Lines’ Album
British trip-hop legends Massive Attack have announced plans to reissue their landmark 1991 debut album, 'Blue Lines,' on Nov. 20, reports Consequence of Sound. The disc -- widely considered the first trip-hop album ever released -- has been remixed and remastered for the re-release, which will be available on CD, as a digital download and as a deluxe box set.
The CD release and box set will be packaged in 5-inch and 12-inch card mailers, respectively, with the album’s original artwork screen-printed on the front of each. The box set includes the album on CD as well as DVD with 96K/24-bit high-resolution audio files, two 180-gram vinyl LPs and the original 'Blue Lines' poster.
Meanwhile, Massive Attack are reportedly holed up in a studio in their hometown of Bristol, England, working away at a follow-up to their 2010 release, 'Heligoland.' That's promising news for fans, who had to wait seven years for 'Heliogland' after the band's previous release, 2003's '100th Window.'
