Brendan Benson is excited to announce the reissue of his seminal debut album One Mississippi, due December 6 via Third Man Records. Twenty-three years after its initial release, the Third Man Records reissue of One Mississippi is the FIRST-EVER vinyl pressing of this now classic album. The deluxe version of the reissue will be available on clear vinyl, and the standard version will be available on black vinyl.
“It’s been a long time coming!” Benson said. “My first album, One Mississippi is finally available on vinyl! Thank you to the miracle workers at Third Man Records for making it so!”
The reissue follows a banner year for Benson, one that saw his songs rise to #1 on the Billboard 200 chart with The Raconteurs’ long-awaited new album Help Us Stranger, as well as performances on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live and a performance and interview on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon. Benson is currently working on a new solo LP — stay tuned for more details.
Years before “Detroit” was the first word on the lips of taste-fakers, hype-stokers, scene-stealers and fame-lords the world over, Brendan Benson’s sheep-in-wolves’ clothing debut album One Mississippi was the unassuming first shot fired from the city and players that would soon become feted beyond their wildest imagination.
