As Metronomy work on their forthcoming sixth album, they take a moment to reflect on the 10th anniversary of their breakthrough album Nights Out. Metronomy’s Joseph Mount has delved into the archives for Nights Out: 10th Anniversary Edition.
Double LP edition pressed on Double Green Coloured Vinyl
It features the original critically acclaimed album alongside a second LP which expands upon Mount’s vision with a set of unreleased demos, rarities and b-sides - many of which make their first appearance on vinyl. Two of the highlights come with alternative versions which have become staples of the Metronomy live set: a bedtime dub version of Holiday which takes it into a darker, glitchier direction, and a French-language version of Heartbreaker. Mount’s Francophile leanings are also explored in Breakbot’s remix of A Thing For Me, which contrasts French touch vibes with Mount’s distinctly English-accented vocals.
Previously issued on an exclusive Rough Trade bonus disc, Over is an instrumental of cinematic scale, while the disc closes with four previously unreleased demos including the leftfield minimalism of Das Booty. Although Metronomy’s 2006’s debut album Pip Paine (Pay The £5000 You Owe) was discovered by those in the know, it was Nights Out that captured the imagination of a much wider audience. Mount achieved the seemingly impossible: he highlighted both the joyous atmosphere of a big night out and a taste of the resultant comedown in a set that playfully veered towards being a concept album.
