OMD / Dazzle Ships 40th anniversary reissue

Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) will next month reissue Dazzle Ships, their fourth studio album.

The 1983 album is being re-released for its 40th anniversary and is available in two vinyl variations and as an expanded CD. All versions included seven demos, compiled and mixed by Paul Humphreys.

The 2LP coloured vinyl version of Dazzle Ships in gatefold sleeve

In terms of the vinyl, there’s a 2LP black version in the original bespoke die-cut sleeve (available only via OMD or Universal Music channels) and then a second version in a standard gatefold sleeve, but pressed on blue and silver coloured vinyl. Both versions will use the alternate blue artwork. Decisions, decisions…

Dazzle Ships will be reissued on 31 March 2023 via UMR/EMI.
