Style-maven and living-legend Grace Jones’ iconic “Nightclubbing” album has gotten it’s first digital remastering treatment just as your record needle dulls from overuse. No one’s telling you to give up your vinyl collection crowning jewel, but the chance to strut the city streets to “Pull Up To The Bumper” at its 21st century prime can’t be missed.
Released by Island Jam Recordings and Universal Music Catologue, “Nightclubbing” will be available on April 28th with a special 12” cut available at Abbey Road Studios on Record Store Day. The Deluxe edition includes bonus mixes and two unreleased tracks—“If You Wanna Be My Lover” and Gary Numan cover “Me! I Disconnect From You.”
