Hum last year made their return after a two-decade hiatus with the excellent new album Inlet, and now they’re reissuing a couple titles from their catalog. On Facebook, the band announced that they’re planning on releasing vinyl reissues of their 1993 album Electra 2000 and their 1995 album You’d Prefer An Astronaut, which features the band’s hit song “Stars.”
“Over the last few months, we’ve successfully navigated through some licensing stuff allowing us to re-release updated versions of Electra 2000, and You’d Prefer An Astronaut on vinyl,” the band’s post reads. “Our plan involves re-mastering and cutting higher quality pressings of these two records. Our hope is to do CD’s as well if possible. We’ll post another update once we iron out all of the details on release dates, label, etc… Since we’ve seen some inflated prices on the secondary market for our older records, we wanted to let people know as soon as possible.”
The band also says that they plan to release more copies of their 1998 album Downward is Heavenward, which they reissued in 2019. Read the full post here.
