Three releases will collect remastered recordings captured between 1996 and 2009

Warp Records is lining up a trio of Broadcast reissues.

Due out in March, the material featured on the three releases was originally recorded between 1996 and 2009, and all of it has been remastered for the reissues, which will be available in CD, vinyl and digital editions. One of the releases combines the two volumes of Microtronics, originally released in 2003 and 2005 respectively, while another focuses on the 2009 tour-only CD Mother Is The Milky Way. The final of the three releases, BBC Maida Vale Sessions, collects four BBC radio sessions recorded between October 1996 and August 2003. Listen to 'Sixty Forty', from the final of those Maida Vale sessions, above.

Formed in Birmingham in 1995, Broadcast were the duo of Trish Keenan and partner James Cargill. They released six albums via Warp between 1997 and 2011, when Keenan sadly passed away from pneumonia, aged 42.

Warp Records will release Microtronics, Mother Is The Milky Way and BBC Maida Vale Sessions on March 18, 2022.
