Big Audio Dynamite plans to record new album, prep more Legacy Edition reissues

Big Audio Dynamite, circa 2011

Turns out the reunion won’t just be about looking backward: Mick Jones and Co. “have plans in the works for a new Big Audio Dynamite album,” according to a news release e-mailed late Monday by Sony Music promoting the band’s three upcoming U.S. performances. No other details of the project are known, although the news release also reveals the band — Jones, filmmaker/DJ Don Letts, keyboardist Dan Donovan, drummer Greg Roberts and bassist Leo ‘E. Zee Kill’ Williams — also is working on “newly-curated Legacy Editions of classic BAD albums.” Last year, Sony released a 2CD Legacy Edition of 1985 debut This is Big Audio Dynamite.

  1. Exciting news as long as it sounds like the first album or Megatop Phoenix and not the rest. Maybe the Gorillaz stint will rub off on Mick.
