Mew’s “Frengers” LP Out on Vinyl on June 3rd
Pre-Orders Now Available
ShopRadioCast will release Mew’s “Frengers” on vinyl on June 3rd. Pre-orders are now available here.
“Frengers” is the third album by Danish band Mew, originally released in April 2003. The title is a portmanteau of the words friend and stranger. A frenger is a person who is “not quite a friend but not quite a stranger” according to the album’s accompanying booklet.
Six of the album’s ten tracks were previously included on Mew’s first two albums “Half The World Is Watching Me” and “A Triumph For Man”, both of which saw only limited release until they were subsequently re-released internationally, but were rerecorded for “Frengers.” The other four are original recordings. The song “Her Voice Is Beyond Her Years” features vocals from Swedish singer Stina Nordenstam and “Symmetry” features vocals from 14 year old Georgian Becky Jarrett. The Japanese version of “Frengers” also included the re-recordings of earlier songs, “I Should Have Been a Tsin-Tsi (For You)” and “Wherever”.
