Cleopatra Records next month will release a new 12-inch vinyl single featuring a pair of newly unearthed and previously unreleased mixes of Ministry’s classic 1985 single “Everyday (Is Halloween),” with another previously unreleased song on the B-side.
The “Everyday (Is Halloween)” — The Lost Mixes single is due out Oct. 30 — naturally — and will be pressed on colored vinyl. It can be pre-ordered now via Amazon.com.
According to the product listing supplied to online retailers, the mixes — named the Dirt Mix and Dirt Dub — have been “unearthed from studio tapes” and are described as “extended and hypnotic offering glimpses of the industrial direction that Ministry founder Al Jourgensen was heading in.”
Side 2 will feature a previously unreleased song called “Playground” and an unissued instrumental version of “I See Red,” a song from 1985 that first surfaced on Ministry’s Trax! Box in 2015.
The cover art is an orange variant of the original “All Day”/”Everyday (Is Halloween)” double A-sided single, originally released by Wax! Trax Records.
