Eurythmics To Release Studio Catalog On Vinyl
Sweet dreams are made of the Eurythmics re-releasing their entire eight-album catalog on vinyl in 2018.
The GRAMMY-winning duo — comprising Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart — made a name for themselves in the '80s with their groundbreaking electro-pop sound. Now their popular career-spanning output will once again be made available on vinyl between April and October 2018 in three installments.
In The Garden (1981), Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This) (1983) and Touch (1983) will be released in April; Be Yourself Tonight (1985), Revenge (1986) and Savage (1987) in July; and We Too Are One (1989) and Peace (1999) in October. This is the first time Peace will be made available via vinyl.

"Issuing our out-of-print vinyl albums in 2018 is a great thing because people won't be listening to our music on a cell phone," Stewart told Billboard. "They'll have a record player and speakers and a sound system, like we did when we were growing up. People will buy vinyl records and put them on the turntable and listen to one side at a time, and hear the tracks played in the particular order that we selected."
Not only will 2018 bring celebration for the Eurythmics with their vinyl reissues, but they have also been nominated for inclusion in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame along with legendary artists such as Nina Simone, LL Cool J, Bon Jovi, and Radiohead, among others.
