The Tragically Hip fans looking to revisit the band’s formative 1994 album Day For Night will have two opportunities to do so later this year.
The band has announced two 25th anniversary editions arriving September 27.
The first is a black half-speed edition cut at Abbey Road Studios, the first ever for a Canadian band. The master was cut and overseen by Miles Showell.
The second edition is a silver coloured vinyl. Both editions will feature all 14 of Day for Night’s songs.
Originally released on September 24, 1994, Day for Night marked The Tragically Hip’s fourth album as a band and their first #1 album. Recorded at Kingsway Studio in New Orleans and Le Cave de Dave in Kingston, Ontario, the record was produced by Mark Howard, The Tragically Hip along with Mark Vreeken and went on to become certified 7x platinum in Canada.
The group performed two songs from the album on Saturday Night Live in 1995 after fellow Canadian and SNL cast member Dan Aykroyd pushed to have the band on the program.
In 1995 the group performed on the famed Saturday Night Live broadcast to promote the album. Their appearance on the show came after fellow Canadian and Saturday Night Live cast member Dan Aykroyd vocalized his support to have them perform live on the program.
