This Mortal Coil reissues

Ivo Watts-Russell, the founder of 4AD Records, released his own music under the name This Mortal Coil. His records would often feature collaborators such as Cocteau Twins’ Elisabeth Fraser, Belly’s Tanya Donnelly, Dead Can Dance’s Lisa Gerrard, The Breeders’ Kim Deal and Magazine’s Howard Devoto among many others. This fall, 4AD is reissuing This Mortal Coil’s classic albums It’ll End In Tears (1984), Filigree and Shadow (1986) and Blood (1991). The albums will be released on October 26 on vinyl and CD.
