4AD are proud to be releasing ‘Pleasures & Treasures’, a double CD compilation of classic and hard-to-find tracks that spans the label’s forty plus years. Exclusively available via Tower Records in Japan, and the 4AD webstore ROW.
As part of this CD, today Lucinda Chua releases a reimagining of Roy Harper’s classic song ‘Another Day’, her first music since the release of her EP Antidotes II. Covered by the likes of Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel, ‘Another Day’ was ushered into alternative folklore by 4AD alum This Mortal Coil in 1984, whose evocative rendition retains a special place at the heart of the label. Inspired by This Mortal Coil’s version, Chua’s interpretation is beautifully orchestrated through cinematic strings and hushed vocal.
'Pleasures & Treasures' was designed by London-based designer Ross Paul McEwan and curated by 4AD staff, the compilation opens with a brand-new recording by Lucinda Chua and also features exclusive live recordings from Big Thief and Dry Cleaning as well as deep cuts by Rema-Rema, The Wolfgang Press and Colourbox, as well as old favourites Cocteau Twins, Lush, and the aforementioned This Mortal Coil.
