Colin Hay’s “Going Somewhere” vinyl is coming out next June 4th

Compass Records is ressuing Colin Hay‘s sixth solo album, the acoustic “Going Somewhere“, as a limited white vinyl edition next June 4th.

Going Somewhere” CD was originally released in 2000 by Colin’s own record label Lazy Eye Records, and then reissued in 2005 by Nashville-based Compass Records, with two additional radio edits of the acoustic versions of “Waiting For My Real Life to Begin” and “I Just Don’t Think I’ll Ever Get Over You“, that are also present at the upcoming vinyl.

Going Somewhere” is considered a follow-up to 1992’s “Peaks & Valleys“, which is also acoustic, with only Colin’s voice and his guitar (well, and sometimes his sister Carol). The album has main songs at Colin’s solo career such as “Beautiful World“,  “Looking For Jack“, “Going Somewhere“, “Wayfaring Sons“, “Waiting For My Real Life to Begin” and “Maggie“.

Paul McCartney considered the song “Going Somewhere” as one of his most favorite songs ever. The song was originally released as a b-side for the single “Hold Me“, from Colin’s solo debut album “Looking For Jack” (1987).

The vinyl edition of “Going Somewhere” is available for pre-sale at Compass Records website, in different bundles. Check it out:
