Los Angeles, CA – July 16, 2012 – Omnivore Recordings has announced they will release the classic 1995 debut album from Spain The Blue Moods Of Spain, 1999 follow up release She Haunts My Dreams, and 2001s third full-length album I Believe all for the first time on vinyl, available in stores and online August 28. The special LP-only reissue releases of Spain’s three studio albums will be available as a limited edition first run on 180-gram colored vinyl, with an edition total of 1,000 copies per album. The Blue Moods Of Spain, a 2LP set featuring a rare b-side as a bonus track, will be issued on translucent blue vinyl; She Haunts My Dreams on clear vinyl; and I Believe on translucent orange vinyl. Once the limited-edition 180-gram colored vinyl sells out, all three albums will be available as an open edition LP pressed on 180-gram black vinyl. A musical endeavor long overdue, and fully realized for the first time, experience Spain as it was meant to be heard – on vinyl!

Spain, the musical brainchild of Josh Haden, released three universally lauded and groundbreaking albums during the late 1990s into the early 2000s, touring across the U.S., Europe and Australia. The group featured Josh alongside his sisters Tanya Haden (Silversun Pickups), Petra Haden (Beck, The Decemberists), and drummer Joey Waronker (R.E.M., Beck, Smashing Pumpkins) among other world-class players.

To celebrate the release, Spain has announced a special album release party on August 28 at the Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles, reuniting Josh, Petra, Tanya and Rachel Haden performing alongside a slate of special guests. Mike Watt + The Missing Men have been confirmed to open the show.

Creating near-melancholic, dreamy atmospheric melodies, Spain’s sound reflected jazz and pop influences, while decidedly staking their claim as a compelling rock band. The band’s sound and moody arrangements began to expand over time from their intimate debut to the more upbeat and rootsy I Believe, before disbanding after its release in 2001.

Collaborators aside, Spain is about Josh creating three amazing albums that may very well have slipped through the populous cracks the first time they were released. Prepare yourself for what you might have missed or relive how you thought it should be.

"I'm very proud and grateful that Omnivore after all these years is releasing the first three Spain albums on vinyl,” said Josh Haden. “The quiet spaces and high fidelity of ‘Blue Moods’ particularly lends itself to a vinyl experience. The recording of those albums came at a very innocent and spontaneous period of my life; it was an amazing musical era for me, and I'm glad it can be shared again."

Recently, Josh regrouped and released Spain’s first studio album in over a decade titled The Soul of Spain, touring Europe in support.
