Trans Am Reissuing ‘Futureworld,’ Playing Album In Its Entirety On Tour

    Futureworld was a pretty big album for the guys of Trans Am. Along with being their fourth record, it was also their first to feature vocals. And to add to the futuristic vibe of the album art and the music in general, they delivered the vocals through a vocoder. As such, it’s only right that they would choose Futureworld to get remastered and reissued by Thrill Jockey. The “new” version of the album, which is due out on vinyl, will feature a download card and two bonus tracks, studio outtake “Nazi/Hippie Empire,” and “Now You Die, Thriddle Fool!”. The former was mixed by James Murphy while the latter was originally released on flexi-disc. Trans Am is also embarking on a North American tour this fall during which they will play Futureworld in its entirety.
