Il duo ambient/drone canadese Nadja ha annunciato la 10th Anniversary Edition del seminale debut album Touched (2003) nella sua versione ri-registrata (2007). La release, che vedrà la luce il 2 giugno per Consouling Sounds, comprende un secondo CD contenente una versione mai rilasciata dell’album.
Questo il commento del polistrumentista Aidan Baker:
“The songs on Touched are the first I wrote under the Nadja moniker, back when the project was just me and confined to the studio. The first versions of these tracks were recorded on cassette 4-track and released on a super limited cdr by the Japanese label Deserted Factory in 2003 and it was this release that first started garnering attention for the project. When Leah joined in 2005 and the band signed to Alien8 Recordings and started performing live, we wanted to give new life to the songs on “Touched” and re-worked and -recorded them. We recorded two versions: the first in our home studio, which would end up being on the 2007 CD released by Alien8 and the LP version released by Conspiracy Records. The second version was recorded more-or-less live at Commonwealth Studios by our long-time friend and frequent collaborator Jonathan Demers and have never before been released, until now on the 10th anniversary of the album, released by Consouling Sounds, another label with whom we have worked since the early days of the project.”
