Not entirely sure what it means, but the band's official Facebook and twitter pages have been posting artwork from Bossanova today.... no captions included....

2020 is the 30th Anniversary... can we expect a reissue? Remixed/Remastered album? Demos/B-sides/outtakes? New packaging/artwork? And possibly a tour if this pandemic stuff ever works itself out?

Whatever it is, they've started teasing it, and I'm excited.

Shows. We deserve nice things.

Some kind of period live release and remaster would be good too.

Would absolutely love something like what they did with Doolittle 25. The B-sides/Peel Sessions, and in particular all the demos along side a remastered album would be amazing.

And if Bossanova is getting this treatment, then it’s pretty definiteTrompe will be too in the future. Now that is something that screams “release the demos/outtakes!” Might finally hear full versions of Pixies playing Brackish Boy, Hang On To Your Ego, Surf Epic, etc.

Official announcement on 4AD.... have to say I’m bummed at how bare bones it is... not a remaster, no bonus material, just red vinyl and a reprint of the 16 page booklet from the original UK release.

maybe it's just not worth it (financially) to give bossanova the full deluxe edition treatment today?

Disappointing. I'll be expecting a virtual reality/holographic reconstruction of the entire 1991 tour next year for the TLM 30th anniversary at least, plus bonus tickets and a bag of weed to smoke. Anything less than that is just taking the piss.

How many of these do you expect they will sell?

Why don't they start bringing out micro vinyl? CD sized vinyl albums that play on miniature record players, with triple fold out gatefold sleeves. I'm sure it must be possible to compress full size albums down to 5" both sides? Maybe not the same sound quality but still, highly collectibles items I think. Get it did somebody.
