Sample a stack of superb signed products across Townsend Music's star-studded spectrum of stores, including releases from Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Ocean Colour Scene, Alison Goldfrapp and many more ⭐️

 

Alison Goldfrapp

Alison Goldfrapp has set a towering bar for British synth-pop in the 21st century and she’s only just getting started with the release of her debut solo album The Love Invention. Released May 12, 'So Hard So Hot', the first single from the record, promises an electrifying dance-pop suite as her multi-faceted musicianship reaches a new peak.

"I wanted lightness to come out of the chorus – there’s tension there, as well as euphoric freedom." - Alison Goldfrapp

On Townsend Music Store, pick up the limited edition Purple Vinyl edition of The Love Invention, complete with a limited edition postcard set, personally signed by the one and only Alison Goldfrapp.


Ocean Colour Scene

Yesterday Today 1999 – 2003 Including Signed Insert

Continuing Demon Records' celebration of one of Britain’s finest bands, we proudly present Yesterday Today 1999-2003. This colour vinyl box set is the next in an ongoing series focussing on a period from the band's illustrious career, pulling together their studio albums in one concise collection. Within the box, you’ll find the band's fourth album One From The Modern, fifth LP Mechanical Wonder, plus 2003's North Atlantic Drift.

The Yesterday Today 1999-2003 box set is the first time Mechanical Wonder and North Atlantic Drift have ever been issued on vinyl since their original release.

Put together in full coordination with the band, all of these albums have been remastered by Phil Kinrade at Alchemy Mastering and pressed on limited edition 140g colour vinyl with an insert signed by all four members of the band from this period.


Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Hana Signed Photo Bundles

Sophie Ellis-Bextor's new album HANA, described by long-time creative collaborator and friend Ed Harcourt as as a “kaleidoscopic joy”, is inspired by East Asia and began with the album track ‘Tokyo’ which recalls Sophie’s first trip to Japan pre-pandemic in 2020. It is Sophie and Ed's third in a trilogy of records, with each stemming around the thematic frame of a location. Hana is set for release on June 2 and is preceded by the single ‘Breaking The Circle’.

“Breaking The Circle is inspired by those late-night moments you have, where you question everything and feel a buzz of adrenaline about what tomorrow might bring.” - Sophie Ellis-Bextor

Hana is available on Official Store-exclusive and limited edition formats including Pastel Pink Vinyl, Signed CD, and Pink/Sage Green Cassette. All bundles include a Signed Photo while stocks last!


The Undertones

Colour Vinyl Reissues Including Exclusive Band-Signed Art Cards


Colour vinyl reissues of The Undertones' first two albums The Undertones and Hypnotised are to be released for the first time on colour vinyl on May 19. The Undertones includes punk/pop classics such as breakthrough hit ‘Teenage Kicks’, famously championed by BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel. Hypnotised, the band’s highest-charting LP is packed with more flawless slices of adolescent frustration including the top ten single ‘My Perfect Cousin'.

When BBC Radio 1 DJ John Peel first played 'Teenage Kicks' on his show on 25 September 1978, he played the song twice (something he had never previously done).

Exclusive, band-signed, Undertones and Hypnotised 12” cover art cards come free with every LP purchased from this store, while stocks last.


Simply Red

Time Signed Print Bundles

Four years since Simply Red's triumphant Blue Eyed Soul, one of the UK’s most treasured bands returns with a brand new studio album Time, out May 26th on Warner Music. Over twelve vivid, heartfelt, life-giving tracks that mix soul, funk, R&B and blues, Time demonstrates an unerring feel and passion for songs that move the emotion and the imagination, including first single from the record 'Better WIth You'.

"Music is one of those wonderful communicators. Each and every person can have an interpretation of a song that can mean something to them." - Mick Hucknall

Time is available on this Official Store on exclusive limited edition Red Vinyl alongside Deluxe CD and Vinyl. All bundles include an Exclusive Limited Edition Artwork Print Signed by Mick Hucknall.


Graham Nash

Now CD w/ Signed Insert


Two-time Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee and founding member of both The Hollies and Crosby, Stills and Nash, Graham Nash returns with his first studio album of new material in seven years, titled Now. Now is produced by Nash and longtime touring keyboardist Todd Caldwell and includes the album’s first single, ‘Right Now’, a celebratory track that finds Nash discussing his old age openly and honestly.

"I believe that my new album now is the most personal one I have ever made... at this point in my life, that's something to say.” - Graham Nash

A staunch supporter of physical music formats, last year Nash asked for his music to be removed from Spotify in solidarity with former bandmate Neil Young. Set for release on May 19, all Time CDs come with an insert, signed by Graham Nash, while stocks last.

 

On Townsend Music Store, we've got a whole load more signed releases for pre-order and out now, including signed editions from Therapy?, Louise, Landscape, Mammoth WVH, Matt Cardle, The Sherlocks, DMAs and many more.
