Underworld have announced a reissue of ‘Drift Series 1’.
In November last year, Underworld concluded their 12-month Drift project with 'Drift Series 1, which saw the duo release new music and collaborative visuals every week for a year. It also marked the first full-length release from the artists since 'Barbara, Barbara, We Face A Shining Future' in 2016.
Following the cancellation of their North American tour in spring 2020, the duo will now instead celebrate their 40-year legacy with a reissue of the Drift series. Slated for release tomorrow, Friday 18th September, the package has been remodeled as a new 8-CD compact edition, with the bonus of a previously unreleased recording of Rick Smith's pre-show set live at Underworld’s show at Ziggodome Amsterdam in November 2019. The new box set will also include a 50-page book.
Alongside the release, the duo will host a Reddit AMA at 9PT/12 noon ET on Friday, where you'll be able to ask them anything here, and will also launch a new website with exclusive merchandise, raising money for selected charities.
