'Wrong Way Up' and 'Spinner' haven't been available in a physical format for 15 years.
Brian Eno is to reissue two collaborative albums with John Cale and bassist Jah Wobble - 1990’s Wrong Way Up and 1995’s Spinner - with a handful of bonus tracks each.
The reissued sets from the 72-year-old English musician and record producer will arrive on August 21 through All Saints Records.
The move also coincides with the 30th anniversary of Wrong Way Up and the 25th anniversary of Spinner.
Spinner's bonus tracks will feature 'Stravinsky' from the soundtrack to Derek Jarman’s movie Glitterbug, and a new track from Wobble titled 'Lockdown'.
Writings and interviews with Eno from the time of each album's release will be included, as well as an essay from Wobble and a painting to the liner notes Spinner.
Neither albums have been available in a physical format for 15 years, so this should prove to be an exciting moment for Eno fans.
Both will be released on vinyl and digitally, while there will also be a standard CD version and a limited edition CDX version that should arrive in casebound packaging.
Eno and Cale have made guest appearances on each other’s records as far back as 1974, with Eno also producing Cale’s 1989 album, Words for the Dying.
Meanwhile, Eno and Wobble made the soundtrack for filmmaker Derek Jarman’s final project before dying of. AIDS complications, 1994’s Glitterbug.
