The Psychedelic Furs “Pretty In Pink” 2 x 7″ pink vinyl in gatefold sleeve with photographic art postcard
Track Listing 1. Original 81 Version 2. Re-recorded 86 Version 3. Berlin Mix 4. Dub Version
Celebrating 35 years since it’s original release, FUTURISMO present a
tribute to one of the most iconic pop songs of all time; THE
PSYCHEDELIC FURS Pretty In Pink. As a heartfelt tribute to its enduring
appeal this double 7” gatefold release comes on limited colour vinyl and
contains not only the Original version but also the 86 Version that was
re-recorded for, and inspired, the classic John Hughes movie of the
same name, as well as the hard to find and never before reissued Berlin
Mix and Dub Versions.
THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS’ were not the pithy end of pop music, but the
cerebral end of the wedge, which is one of the many reasons Pretty in
Pink transcends fleeting appeal. The song was originally taken from
their second album ‘Talk Talk Talk’ yet later re-recorded as the
soundtrack for the aforementioned 1985 John Hughes film, scoring them a
second hit for the song. Follow up albums ‘Forever Now’ and ‘Mirror
Moves’ each continued to instil the bands trans-atlantic importance and
US hit ’Midnight To Midnight’, although sighted as a creative
disappointment for the band, also contained the re-recorded 86 version
of Pretty In Pink, securing it’s position in the hearts of lovelorn,
cynical and acerbic teenage romantics the world over.
Coming 14th July 2017, ahead of the bands upcoming ‘Singles’ Tour,
FUTURISMO present THE PSYCHEDELIC FURS Pretty In Pink 2×7” on Limited
Edition ‘Caroline Pink’ Coloured Vinyl. Contained within the laminated
gatefold sleeve with redux artwork are liner notes, colour inner sleeves
and a photographic art postcard.
Pretty In Pink ranks as one of the greatest songs of all time, a
definitive work that has transcended the era it so clearly defined to
become simply an exhilarating and pop classic. This release is an
unmissable tribute to that song.
