It’s coming ! Originally released in 1998 on the French label Roulé, Stardust’s classic ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ is being reissued on fresh 12” vinyl, to commemorate the 21st anniversary of the track.
The release date has now been confirmed, with the classic re-master set to land via Because Music on June 28th. At the same time, the track will be available on all digital platforms for the first time.
Accorded to Billboard last year after the remastering session, Braxe and Diamond admitted to feeling a little uneasy about Stardust’s return to the studio :
“You don’t know how it’s going to go, it’s a special work to do so I was a bit anxious” said Diamond – Braxe shared the same feeling “I was a bit anxious too, but a month ago I had a listen to the song and I felt like, ‘Wow, it sounds a bit old now.’ It sounds good, but compared to today it sounds a bit old, and I thought it’s a good thing to try and update it.” Nothing too crazy, though: “We did some very subtle compression, it sounds a bit like on the original 12-inch”.
You can now preorder the 20th-anniversary reissue of Stardust’s ‘Music Sounds Better With You’ here.
