180g Vinyl LP Reissue Half-Speed Mastered by Miles Showell at Abbey Road Studios with Updated Artwork!

Walking Wounded – first released in April 1996 by the UK alt-pop duo Everything But The Girl (featuring Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt) – debuted at No. 4 on the UK Album Chart and contains four UK Top 40 singles, including the Top 10 hits “Walking Wounded” and “Wrong,” and set new a benchmark for the intersection of contemporary electronic music and smart pop songwriting. The album was programmed and produced by Watt in 1995 largely in the basement of the duo’s north London home demo studio. “Just an Akai sampler, a computer, a synth and guitar, an inexpensive vocal mic, and an 8-track tape machine,” he says of the process. “We were writing in reverse – mood first, then songs, learning and we went along. It just felt like a new frontier,” adds Thorn.

Producer John Coxon of the recently formed drum ‘n’ bass-inspired duo Spring Heel Jack – and with whom the Watt and Thorn had worked on 1994’s Amplified Heart – was invited to provide a backing track for the album’s title song, and beats specialist Howie B worked on the groove for “Flipside.” The album was then mixed at The Townhouse in west London by Watt and young emerging engineer, Andy Bradfield.

The new vinyl edition has been mastered by long-time Everything But The Girl mastering engineer, Miles Showell, now at Abbey Road Studios, who is one of only a handful of engineers specializing in half-speed mastering that uses new techniques to more faithfully reproduce the sound of original master tapes.
