Lost Television Personalities album to be released in January

Beautiful Despair was recorded in 1990 by Dan Treacy and Jowe Head, and is to be released on January 26th 2018.

This will be the first studio album released by the band since 2010's A Memory is Better Than Nothing, as they went on indefinite hiatus after Treacy suffered a blood clot and subsequently underwent brain surgery in 2011.

Recorded on a 4-track, Beautiful Despair fell between their 1989's Privilege and 1992's Closer to God.

The first track to be shared from this previously unreleased album is 'If You Fly Too High', which can be heard here:
