2016 LP version reissue

Brendan Perry and Lisa Gerrard are Dead Can Dance. Their music began as collages made from musical lineages, lost tribes and cultures long since forgotten — and by giving new life to so much from the past, they created a genuinely timeless body of work.

Dead Can Dance's second album, Spleen And Ideal (1985), saw them experiment more with instrumentation, abandoning guitars in favour of cello, trombone and timpani. Widely acclaimed, there was now a richness of unication between voice and music, lyrics and structure, showing they had a concrete sense of the aural ideal they were striving towards. Its title was taken from Spleen et Idéal, a collection of poems by 18th century French poet Charles Baudelaire.

The 2016 LP version is a repress of the original release.
