Last month, Garbage announced that the 20th anniversary reissue of their third album, BeautifulGarbage, would come out on October 1st. Unfortunately, the release has just been delayed to November 5th. Garbage explained all in a new statement today:
Unfortunately, due to recent vinyl production issues, we are having to push our 20th anniversary reissue of beautifulgarbage to November 5th.
We apologize for the delay and any disappointment caused but deeply appreciate your patience.
Love as always from all of us in Garbage.
Vinyl production delays have been common all year, largely due to Covid, and it has resulted in several albums being pushed back entirely, or at least the vinyl release being later. It’s unfortunate that the BeautifulGarbage reissue will no longer be on its exact 20th anniversary, but a one-month delay isn’t so bad.
Luckily, fans can enjoy three songs off of the reissue already. On August 17th, Garbage shared the “Androgyny” rough mix. We then got a “Shut Your Mouth” remix on August 30th and a “Breaking Up The Girl” remix on September 14th.
More About the BeautifulGarbage Reissue
In a teaser photo last March, we got a preview of what will appear in the BeautifulGarbage rerelease, including several song titles. Most of them appeared on BeautifulGarbage in 2001. “Pay You Back” ended up being released as a b-side under the name of “Enough Is Never Enough.” “After Life,” on the other hand, has not knowingly been released up to this point. The CDs pictured also featured demos, “Shut Your Mouth” remixes, and more.
We now have the full tracklisting, spread across four discs. The first disc is just the original 13 songs that appeared on BeautifulGarbage, remastered for 2021. The second disc is the most interesting, featuring all the b-sides from that era, plus demos, rough mixes, and some acoustic and live recordings. (No “After Life” though!) Discs three and four are both filled with radio mixes and remixes of “Shut Your Mouth,” “Androgyny,” “Breaking Up The Girl,” “Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go!),” and “Parade.”
Look out for the 20th anniversary rerelease of BeautifulGarbage on November 5th.
No Gods No Masters
Three months ago, Garbage released their excellent new album, No Gods No Masters. It’s offered four singles so far: “The Men Who Rule The World,” “No Gods No Masters,” “Wolves,” and “The Creeps.” It’s a splendid and inspired album, and possibly our favorite since either BeautifulGarbage or Bleed Like Me. The main album includes 11 tracks:
- The Men Who Rule The World
- The Creeps
- Uncomfortably Me
- Waiting For God
- Anonymous XXX
- A Woman Destroyed
- Flipping The Bird
- No Gods No Masters
- This City Will Kill You
However, a deluxe edition of No Gods No Masters is also available. In addition to the first 11 tracks, it also includes all the standalone singles and Record Store Day releases Garbage has put out over the last several years.
See the deluxe edition bonus tracks list:
- No Horses
- Girls Talk featuring Brody Dalle
- Because the Night featuring Screaming Females
- On Fire
- The Chemicals featuring Brian Aubert
- Destroying Angels featuring John Doe & Exene Cervenka
- Time Will Destroy Everything
Be sure to pre-order the 20th anniversary rerelease of BeautifulGarbage before it arrives on November 5th. In the meantime, enjoy the “Androgyny” rough mix and remixes of “Shut Your Mouth” and “Breaking Up The Girl.” You should also check out their new album, No Gods No Masters. It’s a powerful set of songs, and perhaps the best Garbage has put out in 20 years. Which is saying something, because they never disappoint! Keep checking back here for all the latest Garbage news.
