 In 1990 Neil Hannon started recording and releasing under the name The Divine Comedy. Thirty years and twelve great albums later, Hannon is rightly adjudged one of the finest singer songwriters of his generation. To celebrate, Divine Comedy Records are remastering and reissuing nine of the band's classic albums.
 The nine reissued albums have been remastered from the original tapes at the legendary Abbey Road Studios by mastering engineer Frank Arkwright (Blur, The Smiths). Overseeing the audio throughout the campaign is engineer / mixer / producer Guy Massey, whose work on the Beatles Stereo Remasters won him a Grammy Award.
 ‘Regeneration’ was originally released in 2001. Recorded with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, the album was a more stripped back, guitar-oriented affair and a big break with their trademark orchestral sound. The Observer said: “‘Regeneration’ marks, for Hannon, a personal and musical breakthrough.” Time Out said “Hannon has finally created an album as complete and deftly wondrous as you suspected he was capable of; every track shines with a love for music.” The Times said “A subtle collection of
gorgeous pop songs. Combining the lyrical dexterity of old with some
spectacular melodies, this is an album that lives up to the promise of its title.” Key tracks from the album include singles ‘Love What You Do’, ‘Bad Ambassador’ and ‘Perfect Lovesong’.
 The CD release consists of two discs: the original remastered album, with a second CD of B-sides, demos and alternate versions lovingly curated by Neil Hannon, much of which has never been heard before. The CD comes with a booklet of photos, credits and extensive liner notes written by Neil covering the context and inspiration behind the album and its songs.
 The LP release consists of the original remastered album, cut at Abbey Road, packaged with a download code for the album and bonus tracks. The LP is heavyweight black vinyl in a gatefold sleeve accompanied with photos, credits and Neil’s liner notes.
