A remastered and extended edition of the 1979 concept album will be released next month.
Originally released under the Frenchman's Z moniker on Pathé Marconi EMI, the LP was specifically inspired by Frank Herbert's iconic Dune novels and, according to Szajnet, reflect a "concept of the book that [he] had decoded." The album has been remastered from the original tapes by Dubplates & Mastering engineer Rashad Becker and includes two previously unreleased tracks from the session: "Duke" and "Spice."
Finders Keepers boss and Szajner admirer Andy Votel has assembled a minimix ahead of the release. Votel says the "Gallic-magnetic conceptual synth-pop classic" has been "waiting over 30 years for the right time to touch-down on planet earth to re-fuel." The mix can be streamed below.
