Annie Lennox / Diva & Medusa vinyl LPs

Annie Lennox‘s first two studio album, Diva and Medusa, are to be reissued on vinyl LP in March this year.

Diva was originally issued in 1992 – around two and a half years after Eurythmics called it a day with We Too Are One – and was a massive success, hitting the top of the album chart and spawning five top thirty singles, including the top ten hits Why, Walking On Broken Glass and Little Bird.

Like Diva, 1995’s Medusa was produced by Stephen Lipson, who had made his name engineering for Trevor Horn, and producing for acts like Frankie Goes To Hollywood and Propaganda. This time around Annie delivered an album of covers, but her inspired choice of The Lover SpeaksNo More I Love You‘s won her a GRAMMY and delivered her biggest UK solo hit to date, as it reached number two in March 1995. Three further singles couldn’t repeat that success but A Whiter Shade of Pale and Waiting In Vain were both top 20 hits.

Both Diva and Medusa will be issued on vinyl on 2 March 2018, around a month before the Eurythmics vinyl reissues start. Note: Amazon in the UK describing these as double vinyl, but I’m fairly sure that’s inaccurate and these are single vinyl releases.
