Trans Am Go Back To The Futureworld

As Thrill Jockey prepares to enter its 20th year in 2012, Trans Am is also preparing a look back into the Futureworld. This fall, Trans Am will tour in the US performing the classic album in its entirety, and Thrill Jockey will reissue a newly-remastered Futureworld on LP, with two digital bonus tracks including an outtake from the original sessions mixed by James Murphy.

The re-mastered Futureworld LP will be available in a limited edition on September 13, and is available now for pre-order. The LP will be packaged in a high gloss jacket with high gloss inner sleeve, and for the first time will include a download card for the album and two digital bonus tracks...
