Love Is Here 20th Anniversary Editions now available!

The much-anticipated 20th anniversary editions of Starsailor's seminal Love Is Here album are now available! 

Originally released in 2001, the band celebrate this milestone with a Deluxe Edition 2CD set and 2LP black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. 

The release features the original album with a bonus disc full of covers, demos, session recordings, rarities, five brand-new 20th anniversary edition tracks and newly written liner notes by the band. 

"With the new tracks we did no want to simply re-record the same versions so we worked on new arrangements & new sounds," said James. "Way To Fall is much more understated and gentle than the original but it works really well. Good Souls invokes the powerful song it has turned into after numerous big live performances, where it had to take on a larger life than the subtle studio recording on Love Is Here." 

A range of limited edition merchandise has also been released to celebrate the album's 20th birthday. 

The Love Is Here 20th Anniversary Edition music and clothing ranges are now available to buy via the Dig! website.
