Details of Polaris‘ deluxe vinyl edition of Music from the Adventures of Pete and Pete have been announced, and it’s out soon — September 18 via frontman Mark Mulcahy‘s Mezzotint label. In addition to the original album, this 21st Century Edition is “the most complete document of this legendary soundtrack,” and comes with a bonus CD of demos for many of the songs, including Pete & Pete theme “Hey Sandy.”
The Music from the Adventures of Pete & Pete 21st Century Edition is pressed on silver vinyl and the gatefold sleeve packaging includes new photos and rare images, plus liner notes written by Pete & Pete creator Will McRobb. It also includes, for the first time, a lyric sheet, so you can prove to friends without a doubt they are actually singing “Doncha talk back” and not “Does you dog bite?” in the chorus of “Hey Sandy.”
You pre-order it today at noon Eastern, and there’s a bundle where you can get it with a new Polaris t-shirt and get entered into a contest to win rare merch like a handwritten lyric sheet and a “genuine Petunia tattoo” (as seen on Little Pete’s arm).
You can watch a promo video for the Music from the Adventures of Pete & Pete 21st Century Edition, which stars the enigmatic and elusive Mr Tastee, below.
There was originally supposed to be a tour in support of the Deluxe Edition, too. Hopefully that will happen as soon as the world gets back to normal.
