Tycho: Past Is Prologue iTunes Reissue

Posted by Scott

Past is Prologue — my first album as Tycho to be released on a label — has been reissued by Ghostly International and is now available on iTunes (and, as always, at the ISO50 Shop). the reissue includes an exclusive remix by Mux Mool of From Home.

I often get asked about the lineage of this album, which has taken on many forms, so I thought I’d lay it out here. The original release was entitled Sunrise Projector and was self-released. Later, Merck records picked it up and released it as Past is Prologue. The Merck version featured new artwork, two new original songs, and two new remixes — but was missing one of the tracks from the Sunrise Projector release. Merck also released a 12″ vinyl sampler featuring 5 tracks from the album. Now, ghostly has released this digital reissue which features the new Mux Mool remix. Hope that clears it up!

Can you please make a song that’s 48 hours long? They are always so great and never last long enough. I’ve had your album on repeat for most of the last year.

I’ll pick up this album just for the remix. (Also my digital copy isn’t so legit.) I’ve got the sampler vinyl and I’m looking to buy another real soon.

classic… sad to not see it getting pressed on vinyl though. Digital just doesn’t do this fine album justice. (Artwork & Sound)

Just purchased to support the album. My favorite album of all time. Here’s hoping you take your time on the next album. Remember: Make sure the music pleases you, before you try and please your fans. ;)

Keep doing great work Scott!

Loving the album so far, but I just bought it in the merchline store and it didn’t include this remix.

I remember when I first got my copy of Sunrise Projector years ago. Glad to see it reaching new audiences. ;)

Shocked this album is virtually impossible to find physical copies of (copies that don’t cost $50, anyhow). It’s too wonderful to sustain me on MP3 ~ I need to hold it!!
