Next for the Tragically Hip: 25th-Anniversary editions of Day for Night

Yes, it’s been that long. I’ve checked the math, both with a computer and by hand. Come September, it will be a quarter-century since the Tragically Hip released their fourth album, Day for Night.

The first version will come on two silver vinyl LPs. The second will come in traditionally black but will have been given a half-speed mastering once-over at Abbey Road Studios by Miles Showell. That second edition will also have alternate artwork.

Here’s more on how half-speed mastering is done.

Both versions can be ordered through the band’s online store.

    I do want this, however, it pisses me off when bands to this. On one hand, you have the limited edition silver edition, on the other, it’s the regular version pressed at half speed with alternative artwork. How about a third option, half-speed pressing with alternative cover and silver wax. I’m not going to buy 2 versions of it, this just makes me not want to buy it.
