When Love Breaks Down (Acoustic Version)
New Digital Single - Out Monday 12th March

WLBD was the Sprouts first real hit, reaching #25 on the UK chart - eventually.  The single was first released in November 1984, but it wasn't until the third release a year later that it finally took off.

At the time Paddy described it as 'a very personal song,' a rare thing in the Prefab Sprout catalogue. 

Now it is being released again, but this time with an entirely new acoustic arrangement, recorded mid-2005 by Paddy McAloon himself.  It will be available on all major online music stores as a digital download on Monday 12th.

Steve McQueen Legacy Edition
2CD Deluxe Re-Release - Out Monday 2nd April

'Steve McQueen,' or 'Two Wheels Good' as it was called in the USA, is regarded as the definitive Prefab Sprout album, and has appeared in countless 'greatest album ever' polls.  At the time of it's original release in June 1985, it reached #21 in the UK chart and stayed in the charts for 35 weeks.

And if you haven't heard, it is being re-released on April 2nd as a two-disc set.  The first disc has the original album remastered by Thomas Dolby himself, the legendary 'fifth Sprout' who not only produced the original, but picked which of Paddy's songs to include.  According to Dolby himself, it sounds 'insanely good.'

On the second disc are eight brand-new acoustic versions of classic tracks, recorded and arranged by Paddy in mid-2005.  According to Keith Armstrong of Kitchenware records, they 'took longer than the original album' to complete, and are radical departures from the album versions.

So as you can see, it is well worth your time and money.  It is available to pre-order online right now, and will be in all good record stores.
