This Mortal Coil, the gothic dream-pop collective led by 4AD founder Ivo Watts-Russell, released three gorgeous, hugely influential albums between 1984 and 1991: It’ll End In Tears, Filigree & Shadow, and Blood. The label announced today that all three LPs will be reissued with “remastered audio made from the original analogue studio tapes” and new artwork by Ivo Watts-Russell and Vaughan Oliver (4AD’s long-time visual partner), presented in “beautiful, hand finished, and high-gloss gatefold sleeves.”

Manufactured by Ichikudo company in Japan, the deluxe CD editions will be packaged in high-quality gatefold paper sleeves, and improve upon those found in the 2011 limited box set by being UHQCDs (Ultimate High Quality Compact Disc) rather than HDCDs (High Definition Compatible Digital).
