After originally being released as a very small CD-only pressing on their own Animal label in August 2000, Animal Collective are now reissuing their seminal debut LP.
The new revamped version of 'Spirit They're Gone, Spirit They're Vanished' will include remastered audio, new artwork by Abby and Dave Portner, and the 'A Night At Mr. Raindrop’s Holistic Supermarket EP', which contains five previously unreleased tracks, including a cover of Fleetwood Mac’s 'Dreams', that were recorded from the same era and mixed by Animal Collective’s Deakin.
Previewing the new collection is 'Chocolate Girl (Remastered 2023)' and the never-before-released 'Untitled 1', and will be available physically on standard 2xLP, and an expanded edition containing the EP will be available digitally and physically via deluxe 3xLP & 2xCD formats from the 12th May via Domino.
Check out both of the new offerings in the players and see the full tracklistings below.
