portishead dummy lpPortishead will celebreate the 20-year anniversary of their debut record, the trip-hop classic Dummy, by reissuing it on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl. The band should be announcing a release date via their website this week.

The first 1,000 copies of the album will be on blue vinyl, defaulting back to black vinyl after that. It will also come with a download card of the original album. Dummy won’t be seeing a remaster or additional songs added to the original tracklist.

Even more great news in the Portishead world is word that the band is headed back to the studio soon to work on the follow-up to 2008’s Third, band member Adrian Utley told The Quietus in February. Given how amazing Third was, we’re on the edge of our seats in anticipation.
