Monty Python’s classic 1989 album Monty Python Sings will be reissued on 9th June it has been confirmed.
Titled Monty Python Sings (again) the album will be released ahead of the comedy icons Monty Python Live (mostly) shows at London’s O2 Arena. The album will be released on two remastered CD formats, both including a 32-page booklet of lyrics, and will contain brand new recordings, never-before-released gems and remixed Terry Gilliam cover artwork.
The deluxe edition box set also contains a bonus disc featuring their debut album Monty Python’s Flying Circus which was recorded live at Camden Town Hall in May 1970.
One of the new songs is called Lousy Song and was originally recorded during sessions for the Monty Python’s Contractual Obligation Album in 1980. Talking about the track Eric Idle says, “It is the only totally improvised sketch I can remember Python doing. Graham (Chapman) enters the recording studio when I’m listening back to a song I have recorded. I think it is very funny.”
A career-spanning box set entitled Monty Python’s Total Rubbish: The Complete Collection will be released on 30th June. It features all nine of their UK albums and will be released on CD and vinyl.
