FOUR PIECES – A YAZOO COMPENDIUM
26TH OCTOBER 2018
We’re delighted to announce that, due to fan feedback and demand, Four Pieces will be available on CD as well as vinyl and digitally. The CD version will feature the same tracklisting as the vinyl and digital formats and we will have more details about the packaging and release date as soon as that information is available.
Over 35 years since their formation, Yazoo – Vince Clarke and Alison Moyet – are still acclaimed as one of the UK’s greatest pop duos. During their short time together they made two groundbreaking albums, Upstairs At Eric’s and You And Me Both, released iconic hit singles including ‘Only You’, ‘Don’t Go’ and ‘Nobody’s Diary’, and toured before disbanding in 1983. Their legacy was a sentiment and a sonic style which sent shock waves through the early-80s charts and continues to be heard in the latest pop hits and throughout contemporary electronica.
Four Pieces is a deluxe vinyl box of 4 LPs set in hardback book format, exclusively remastered and pressed on heavyweight black 180g vinyl. The cover is white, soft-touch, matt laminate printed with silver foil on the front and back.
