Portishead to reissue <em>Dummy</em> on vinyl

The trip-hop originals celebrate the album’s 20th anniversary.

Portishead will re-issue 1994’s iconic Dummy on 180-gram, heavyweight vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. The first 1000 copies will be pressed on blue vinyl, but — unlike most anniversary re-issues — there will be no additional material, just the songs “exactly as recorded on the original release.” The band will be open for orders on Wednesday, August 13.

Earlier this year, Portishead began writing the successor to 2008′s extraordinary Third. Adrian Utley and Geoff Barrow were reportedly ”really enthusiastic” about album number four, with Utley noting that “enthusiasm counts for a lot in Portishead world.”
