In 1997, after a lengthy hiatus, Echo & The Bunnymen returned to the fore with ‘Evergreen’, revealing the brighter side of the band, and standing up with any of their earlier work. The self-produced album was recorded at The Doghouse in Henley-On-Thames with additional strings, horns and vocal arrangements recorded at Abbey Road.
The album saw the band rightfully return to the UK album charts at #8, with 3 singles (‘Nothing Lasts Forever’, ‘I Want to Be There [When You Come]’ and ‘Don’t Let It Get You Down’) entering the UK top 50. ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ (with backing vocals and tambourine by Liam Gallagher) has grown to become one of the band’s most enduring and well-loved songs – a UK Top 10 and a fan favourite to this day.
To celebrate its 25 year anniversary, London Records releases ‘Evergreen’ on vinyl for the very first time, with a limited first pressing in solid white vinyl.
