Continuing the reissue campaign he announced last summer, Gabriel is set to release half-speed vinyl remasters for his So, US and UP albums on July 15.

“It has been heartwarming to see the return of vinyl,” said Gabriel in a press release. “Even though I loved being free of its limitations in the digital world, there is still a warmth and presence to vinyl that somehow makes it a more natural human companion. It is great to see a new generation learning the secrets of the grooves.”
