'Pleasures & Treasures' JCD Featuring Lucinda Chua's 'Another Day' Cover 4AD,Lucinda Chua

    Exclusively available from Tower Records in Japan, 4AD are proud to be releasing ‘Pleasures & Treasures’, a double CD compilation of classic and hard-to-find tracks that spans the label’s forty plus years. 

    As part of this CD, today Lucinda Chua releases a reimagining of Roy Harper’s classic song ‘Another Day’, her first music since the release of her EP Antidotes II. Covered by the likes of Kate Bush & Peter Gabriel, ‘Another Day’ was ushered into alternative folklore by 4AD alum This Mortal Coil in 1984, whose evocative rendition retains a special place at the heart of the label. Inspired by This Mortal Coil’s version, Chua’s interpretation is beautifully orchestrated through cinematic strings and hushed vocal.
