THE FIRST standalone vinyl single to come from Vini Reilly’s brittle guitar soundscapers The Durutti Column in the 21st century is due to be released this summer – on Vini’s birthday.

The 7″, to be pressed on “crystal clear” vinyl, will contain two tracks: “Free From All Chaos”, as first issued on 2014’s Chronicle 2CD box set; with the previously unissued “Number Three”, which was recorded at the same time, on the flip.

“Number Three” features the vocals of singer/songwriter Caoilfhionn Rose, who has been a regular collaborator in recent years.

The single heralds a series of vinyl pressings of Durutti material originally put out for the Kooky label, for which Vini released a clutch of albums between 2008 and 2014.

The single, which is limited to a pressing of 750, is available to pre-order here.
