Scott Walker’s The Drift will be reissued on vinyl for 2012.
Originally released in 2006, The Drift is Walkers’ thirteenth solo album and the only one he’s released since 1995’s Tilt (since the Walker Brothers broke up in the late ’70s, Walker’s risen from the shadows roughly once a decade – a bit like It – to release another classic). No word on whether this 2012 Vinyl Edition of the record features any new or bonus material (we suspect that it doesn’t), but it’s available to pre-order at several online stores now – good news for those who missed it the first time around, as Discogs’ lowest copy is priced at £56.
Release date is July 10. Stream ‘Jesse’, a highlight of The Drift, below.
