Pre Order Released 04/06/21
This very special reissue celebrates the 21st anniversary of the release of Argentinian Juana Molina's breakthrough album 'Segundo' in 2000. It has been remastered from the original tapes, and is available as a CD digipak augmented with a 32-page booklet and a deluxe 2LP set with a gatefold sleeve and 16-page 30 x 30 cm booklet. The detailed booklet recounts the eventful start of Juana's musical career, and containing numerous notes, anecdotes, original drawings and previously unreleased pictures.
Contributors to the booklet include Bruce Springsteen's producer Ron Aniello, Domino Recording's Laurence Bell and David Byrne who, when he discovered the album, immediately invited Juana to open for him on his 2003 US tour.
'Segundo' started Juana Molina's international trajectory as a musician. After dropping a highly-successful career as a TV comedian, she turned to music making. Regretting signing with a major company, who got her to record an over-produced debut album, she resolved to find her own direction in music. The result was 'Segundo' that took 4 years to make involving sessions in Argentina and the USA
'Segundo' finally came out on a small label in Argentina in 2000, found its way to Japan where it spectacularly took off, and was eventually picked up by the Domino label in 2003. Its reception set Juana Molina on course for performing around the globe, garnering a large, devoted fan base, and going on to record five more extraordinary studio albums.
