MUSIC PREVIEW: No need to erase but please, rewind

The Cardigans release their entire back catalogue on February 1

One of my favourite bands, The Cardigans, have announced the re-release of a host of their back catalogues - and I can't wait.

From the moment I heard 'Lovefool' - their song in the hit 1996 film version of Romeo and Juliet featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, I've been a fan.

That huge single was followed up by the superb 'Erase and Rewind' and 'My Favourite Game', all richly led by the stunning and unmistakable vocals of Nina Persson.

The Swedish band have certainly stood the test of time.Their music has also featured on the soundtrack to A Life Less Ordinary and the X-Files soundtrack.

On February 1, the band will be issuing all six of their albums on remastered vinyl LP - two of which will be available on vinyl for the very first time.

That includes their debut ‘Emmerdale’; plus their 1992-2005 'Super Extra Gravity’.

The collection will also feature titles from their illustrious back catalogue, including ‘Life’ (1995), ‘First Band On the Moon’ (1996), 'Gran Turismo' (1998) - of course, and ‘Long Gone Before Daylight’ (2003).

All the albums have been remastered at Sterling Sound studios in New York.
