The Human League Secrets Following a greatest hits compilation in the late 90s the Human League signed to the Papillon label. The line-up of Philip Oakey, Susan Sulley and Joanne Catherall recorded the “Secrets” album, with keyboard player Neil Sutton, who co-wrote most of the songs with Oakey, and programmer David Beevers providing the trademark Human League sound. The album’s release in 2001 was preceded by the single “All I Ever Wanted”, but both the single and album lost promotion and sales when Papillon ran into financial difficulties and was closed shortly after the album’s release. This 2LP edition features the original album over the first three sides, while the newly-added fourth side features a non-album B-side, along with one rare remix each of “All I Ever Wanted”, “You’ll Be Sorry” and “Love Me Madly?”.

CHVRCHES / John Carpenter Turning The Bones / Good Girls An awesome 7" single from CHVRCHES and John Carpenter, a perfect match of artists remixing one of the others' tracks. Scottish synth pop sensations Chvrches have a history of commissioning remixes for each of their chart topping albums. Given the cinematic concept of their latest Screen Violence they wanted to get a composer involved who worked in that universe. Singer and percussionist Lauren Mayberry said that the master of horror John Carpenter was the top of their wish list elaborating that “His films and music have been so impactful on us over the years, and without the stories he created I am not sure that the concept of Screen Violence (and female narratives within the album) would exist in the way they do.” They decided to reach for the stars and contact Carpenter’s team and to their delight Carpenter was excited by the idea. Lauren continues “As horror fans, we know that John Carpenter is the godfather and the gold standard and we’re so excited to get to work with him in any capacity... we never really thought he’d reply, let alone that he’d send back something better than the original.” Carpenter’s remix of the Chvrches song “Good Girls,” created alongside his creative partners Cody Carpenter and Daniel Davies, enhances the depths of the song’s already infectious synthesizer melodies and adds his signature slightly sinister swagger and groove. “We chose the track we did because we connected with it the most and felt it would adapt best to our style,” Carpenter said of the song choice. “After we finished our remix, we asked them if they could also remix one of our songs in return, and they thought it was a great idea.” Carpenter could hear the strength of combining these two vastly different but stylistically symbiotic sounds and Chvrches was more than happy to oblige. They chose a standout track from Carpenter’s recent Lost Themes III album “Turning the Bones” and the resulting remix is equally as dynamic and unique. Collaborating across genres and genera- tions these artists have honored a deep respect from one another. Sacred Bones 7" Pre-Order
