Powderfinger announce 20th anniversary deluxe edition of ‘Internationalist’

Released on This Day in 1998

Twenty years to the day since the release of their ARIA award winning album Internationalist, Powderfinger has announced they’ll be releasing a deluxe edition of the album to make the most of the celebrations.

Released in 1998, the original album featured 13 tracks and is set to be extended to a whopping 35 tracks for its deluxe edition, including unreleased tracks and rarities. Recordings from the vault that will feature on the new version of Internationalist include all B-sides from the album, a triple j Live at the Wireless session from 1998, and previously unreleased demos such as the never-before-heard track ‘Feels Like Something’.

 

Internationalist marked the third studio album released by Powderfinger, shooting to the top of the ARIA  charts and reinforcing the stellar reputation the band was building.

 

 

The band recalls working with producer Nick DiDia on the record at Sing Sing studios in Melbourne, saying, “We probably can’t overstate the influence Nick had on helping us define this album, and three subsequent. We tracked the main body of the album in a few weeks and we were all gobsmacked at how good he'd got it all to sound. We had made great sounding records before, but this was alive. It was leaping out of the speakers when we mixed it.”

 

Fans can purchase the deluxe edition of Internationalist as a 180 gram purple vinyl, 2CD edition, standard vinyl, and on all digital services.
