Grace Jones Is Releasing A Deluxe Remaster Of Nightclubbing

Ladies and gentlemen, here's GraceGrace Jones' iconic Nightclubbing record is receiving a massive re-issue treatment.  Originally released in 1981, the album has been regarded as one of her best among a career filled with endless highs.  It's one of my personal favorites, alongside with 1985's Slave To The Rhythm.  This new edition will arrive in several forms.  First, a two disc CD including a slew of alternate versions, remixes, b-sides, and unreleased songs from the Nightclubbing sessions.  Second is a heavyweight double-LP that includes the unreleased tracks and six remixes and finally, a blu-ray for the most extreme audiophiles.  There will also be a standard CD and digital release, but you really gotta go all the way with this album.

One of the previously unreleased songs is a cover of Tubeway Army's "Me! I Disconnect From You".  A radio edit is currently available for streaming, ahead of the Nightclubbing re-issue, which is due on April 28.  The song will also be released as a vinyl single in the UK on Record Store Day.  You can stream the track and a short teaser for the album below.
