A Flock of Seagulls announced last week that they will release a deluxe edition of their debut album on February 17, 2023 via BMG, marking the record’s 40th anniversary.
The A Flock of Seagulls album, which came out in 1982, reached the top 10 on the album charts in the U.S., and the album’s second single, “I Ran (So Far Away)” also broke into the top ten.
The 40th Anniversary 3CD reissue includes the original album remastered, as well as b-sides, singles, BBC Sessions and a BBC concert held at the Paris Theatre, London, which was originally transmitted in January 1982.
The set also features sleeve notes by writer John Earls and an interview with the band’s lead singer and founding member Mike Score.
The album is also being reissued on colored (orange) vinyl.
