Prefab Sprout Announce Four Vinyl Reissues

‘80s English pop outfit Prefab Sprout have announced vinyl reissues of three studio albums and the band’s 1992 A Life of Surprises greatest hits compilation, set to hit shelves Sept. 27.

The band’s 1984 debut Swoon, 1988 commercial success From Langley Park to Memphis and 1990 release Jordan: The Comeback will receive new pressings, remastering and reimagined artwork. The band’s web store notes that the reissues were “fully orchestrated” by members Paddy and Martin McAloon.
